"Playing in a Champions League final at my age is a dream come true”, he added.
Mateo Kovacic spoke to Audi about the Champions League final: “It will be a difficult game. They are strong in defence but we have very good, fast players. I arrived here feeling very young and playing in a Champions League final at my age is a dream come true and I hope to keep going in this way”.

"Real Madrid is the biggest club in the world and its an honour to be here. I have felt really good since the first day. Playing alongside the best players is a great feeling. Up until two years ago I had never played with such great players and now I'm on the pitch with some incredible players. It's brilliant and I hope to learn a lot from them and play at the same level”.

Zidane
“He was an idol. Not just for myself but for many of the players who I play with now. He was one of our favourite players. Working with him is incredible because two or three years ago it was impossible but now he is our manager. We all feel good around him and we have a good connection”.

Modric
“He welcomed me and it has been nice to have him here because it is difficult coming to a new club and a new city without knowing anyone. I had him here and he has helped me a lot. That is why I'm thankful to him".

Language
“My Spanish is…very good. Hala Madrid!”.
