How does Mazzarri play Guarin the tard over the future god of football is just beyond me...
Waiting for the day when we sell him because he doesn't fit someones stupid system
Hope Thohir and his men aren't weak minded like some people we knew
The croatian commentator when he was subbed out: "Izlazi kovacic, heroj utakmice".
Or in english: "Kova is out, the hero of the game"
So he had a great game ?
Encouraging to hear someone so young has so much influence.
... Or did he play shit and the commentator is trolling ?
He doesn't fit Mazzarri's system though. That's the problem. Give him players behind him that will give it it to him at his feet, and give him options in front of him so he isn't marked by multiple men and he would flourish here. Instead we'll probably get occasional glimpses of his talents and nothing more.
If we're lucky we'll see the best of him when he get a new coach in a few years time who plays 4-2-3-1. It's perhaps feasible that Mazzarri might play a 3-4-1-2 system in the future which doesn't just involve switching the ball to the wings constantly, but even that his midfield support will be Guarin and Cambiasso and neither will be able to supply the type of ball he needs on a regular basis.
Kovacic can fit to any sistem in any position in the midfield.
I said it in the summer and i didn't changed my mind - he's our best player with no doubt. Huge potential, can be one of the greatest players that ever played for this club, and we only need to be patient with him.
Mazzarri gave him so many chances? Taider and Guarin played much more than him. Kovacic need's to play where Cambiasso playing, Like Pirlo in Jube. He's still very good as side midfielder or AMF, but as a playmaker he's fantastic.Well, he hasn't shown that as of yet though.
I don't think he needs much to succeed, but he needs the ball at his feet, and needs space in front of him. For some reason that has been too much for him to ask for so far
He doesn't fit Mazzarri's system though. That's the problem.
