Dinamo Zagreb legend Josip Gaspar has been sacked from his position as manager of Prečko after he was alleged to have stolen a credit card from the wallet of one of his players to buy 36 litres of Jagermeister.

The 40-year-old former midfielder enjoyed a successful club career with Dinamo, during which time he played 420 times, while made one appearance for Croatia, but his reputation has taken somewhat of a battering following his recent dismissal.

When Gaspar was relieved of his duties over the Easter weekend it was initially unclear as to why he had been fired by his employers, but reports in the Croatian press have offered some insight into the reasons behind his sacking.

Gaspar allegedly took the wallet of one of his charges from the Prečko dressing room, before taking it with him on a shopping trip to Zagreb city centre where he proceeded to use the credit card he had illicitly acquired on a Jagermeister splurge.

Reports claim that Gaspar spent £447 on the German spirit, equating to 36 one litre bottles of product, and later returned to the same shop to complete another transaction, only to find the had maxed out the card.
