Zlatko Dalic as Croatia national team coach expressed his hopes to Maurizio Sarri. Dalic requested that the coach could give more time for Mateo Kovacic top play in this season.
This summer, Kovacic was officially loaned by Real Madrid to English club Chelsea. The player will play for one season with Chelsea.
Kovacic himself looks quite active in the Chelsea club. He has twice had the opportunity to play and once played as a reserve in Chelsea.
Seeing this thing, Dalic asked Sarri to give Kovacic more playing time.
“Kovacic has made the right decision by joining Chelsea,” said Dalic to Sportske Novosti.
Dalic saw a great potential in Kovacic. He even considers that the player is a very talented person and can provide additional real strength for the team.
“He can still develop. He will issue his best potential if given enough time to play. All can be achieved as long as you play constantly. ”
“When playing at Real Madrid, he didn’t get enough time, but at Chelsea, he can get his time and show his abilities.”
“His potential is HUGE. I hope Sarri can give enough time for him to play.”
Chelsea currently sits in the Premier League standings this season. They managed to win four wins in their opening match in the Premier League this season.
