Vedran Corluka, a former defender for Manchester City, has received appreciation from Josko Gvardiol.
The 21-year-old was asked to choose his all-time Croatian XI who have competed in the Premier League while speaking to City’s official YouTube channel.
He was mentioned by Josko Gvardiol, who collaborates closely with Vedran Corluka in the international setup.
Vedran Corluka, according to Josko Gvardiol, is a great teacher.
While Corluka is well-known for his stint at Tottenham Hotspur, he only spent one season with the Sky Blues.
The young player at the time made an impression with City, making 47 appearances during his only season there, which led to Harry Redknapp’s Spurs signing him.
Vedran Corluka has recently received praise from Josko Gvardiol, who included him in his all-time Croatian Premier League XI.
He is currently the national team’s assistant manager. He produces videos and set pieces, so it’s fantastic to see him on the national team. He had a remarkable career, in my opinion, and I can learn a lot from him as well, he remarked.
It appears that Josko Gvardiol is eager to learn.
There is no denying the former RB Leipzig center-back’s quality, which Mateo Kovacic described as “phenomenal.”
Josko Gvardiol had been predicted to become the best defender in the world, thus it may come as a surprise to some to learn that he draws inspiration from Vedran Corluka, a class player who never made it to the top level despite being a class player.
Guardiola must, however, have a profound awareness of the 37-year-old’s background and respect for his impressive time spent in English football if he wants to work closely with such seasoned professionals as the 37-year-old.
In the end, Josko Gvardiol exhibits traits of a future star player, including a willingness to learn and respect for his predecessors.
