League summary:

1. HNL 2014/2015 (ongoing): 3 matches/0 goals (Dinamo Zagreb)



Dani Olmo used to be one of the brightest stars of the Barcelona youth teams and when it seemed that he will follow in Xavi’s and Iniesta’s footsteps, he made a shocking and unexpected decision in the summer of 2014 – signed with Dinamo Zagreb. It is worth noting that this was not the only blow to the famous La Masia, because at around the same time, another huge talent – Georgios Spanoudakis – moved to VfB Stuttgart. He made his professional debut on 7 February 2015 in a league match against NK Lokomotiva, where he replaced Paulo Machado after 76 minutes. Dani is a regular of La Roja youth teams, currently playing for their U-17 squad.



“Dinamo is the best option for my career. I know that players who have played here like Modrić, Halilović, Mandžukić and Kovačić who are now at big clubs like Barça, Real Madrid, or Atlético.”
