It’s really nice to see things like that, especially because there’s Kovacic, so you never know. I am talking with him,” said Josko Gvardiol, who however does not intend to force his departure from Leipzig.
“My agent is taking care of this and we will see. For now, I am happy in Leipzig. I don’t know, we’ll see – you never know. You know the stories and these things, but all I can say is that I am happy in Leipzig and for now I will stay there and play for them. Even being here on the biggest event, it’s a big thing for me at 20 so I’m happy. I have to think about it,” the Zagreb native added.
