If we take a look what DInamo has launched on the market in the previous 7-8 years, definitely they have better youth setup. It's also confirmed and honored 2-3 years ago in Uefa, along with Ajax and Barcelona football school, so yes...
Dinamo is in Europe's top 3 youth academies. Croatian first eleven in U-19 or U-17 is consisted of all Dinamo Zagreb players. Others also play football, my local club NK Osijek is also considered as a club with one of the best youth academies in Croatia. Perhaps NK Osijek has never been a winner of HNL, but in youth categories NK Osijek is a very successful club.
Imagine when Ante Čorić, Mateo Kovačić and few more players moved from Austrian clubs, infrastructure and other things for a move to Dinamo so they could become one day great players. That speaks a lot for Dinamo youth academy and how serious job has been done over the last 10 years.
Romeo Jozak who was coordinating chief of Dinamo youth categories for years had also an offer from Arsenal in the last 3-4 years to do the same at Emirates.
No matter how evil for some people is Zdravko Mamić, this part in Croatian football no one won't reach for years. HNK Hajduk know whining and blaming everyone for their incompetence and mafia, but still can't sell 4 players for 15 mil € in the last 5 years and solve their huge financial problems, what else we can talk about.
