Why does our captain, Niko Kovac look Asian?
Posted July 17, 2007on:
This title may be very missleading because this article isnt really about why Niko looks asian. This article is about something completely different. Well not that different, it is still an article about our Croatian capatain.
Anyway, Niko Kovac is now how old? All I know he was born October 15th 1971 which I think makes him 36! How long will this player stay in the Croatian national team? Will he stay longer then the Euro 2008 tournament? Will he participate in the FIFA world cup games? These are all questions we must ask our sleves because this man in 2008 will be 37 years old! And 39 in 2010!
Niko Kovac doesnt get enough credit for his hard work that he gives the Croatian national team. He is probably the only player on the squad that plays his heart out. When everyone is leaning forward with sweat poring down their backs. Niko Kovac is still pushing and trying a little harder then everyone else. He truely plays untill he really can’t anymore.
The weird part about having Niko Kovac on the squad is not his age diffrence from other players, but the age diffrence between him and Slaven Bilic! Slaven Bilic right now is 39! And Niko is 36! And in 2010 Niko will be 39….but will Niko play in the world cup while being 39!?
I personaly think he should play in the next world cup “IF” Croatias performace in Euro 2008 fulfills our expectations.
