Croatian defender Joško Gvardiol has admitted that he ‘dreams of playing for Liverpool’.
Gvardiol was a stand-out performer in the World Cup and since then his future has been a subject of speculation.
Due to some of his heroic performances Croatia finished 3rd in Qatar.
Speaking to RTL the defender discussed a range of topics. One of them includes his future. He admitted that he would most like to play in the Premier League and stated “Since I was little, I watched a lot of Liverpool matches with my dad, and we covered every season in detail. It is a club that has remained in my heart.”
You will find a portion of his interview below:
What would you like in terms of league, in which would you most like to play?
“Since I was a child, I always gravitated towards the English league. We all know what kind of league it is. I don’t know if I’m mature enough and ready for that league. We will see, when I feel that this is the moment, that I have crossed a certain level and reached the border in Germany, then I will look further.”
Manchester City was also mentioned for the transfer. If you had to choose City or Chelsea?
“Well, I do not know. Nobody presented anything to me. No idea as far as I’m concerned. But I’m not in a hurry, we have time, let them arrange the plan and we’ll see.”
And if I were to ask 10-year-old Joško, what would he say in which club he wants to play?
“That would definitely be Liverpool. Since I was little, I watched a lot of Liverpool matches with my dad, and we covered every season in detail. It is a club that has remained in my heart.”
It is not the first time the Croatian has gone public with his dream. Speaking last year to 24sata the defender said:
“In Liverpool. From a young age, I watched Liverpool games with my dad and I grew up with only them.
“When I took football more seriously, I started following them, and I definitely want the Premier League and Liverpool.”
