Speaking after his 30-minute appearance for Chelsea in last Saturday 3-2 win over Arsenal, Blues midfielder Mateo Kovacic told Sport Klub TV:
“I am happy because of victory, the most important is that team played good.
“I feel fine, I miss rhythm but I just joined the team. I am working fine and improving. It was important for me after three years without continuity of play in Madrid, to find a team and coach that want me, and that happened in Chelsea.
Kovacic finished last season’s La Liga campaign with Real Madrid with an 88% dribble success rate, the best of any player to have attempted at least 30 dribbles.
