Chelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic: Nice to score in Austria


Chelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic has expressed his delight at scoring in the country where he was born.

The central midfielder was terrific for the Blues as they beat RB Salzburg away from home in the Champions League group stages on Tuesday.

Speaking after the 2-1 win, which took place in Austria, Kovacic spoke about how he was born only 75 miles east of Salzburg.

“It's nice to score in the place where I was born," he stated to club media post-game.

“My parents are from here, my friends as well and it's a special occasion for me. I'm very happy about the goal and of course getting the win.

“Everyone says I don't score many! This one was very special for me, it was a nice goal and it was important that the team got the win. Who scores the goals in the end is less important, the win is the main thing."
