Mother: 'Pjaca loves Italian football'

Marko Pjaca hasn’t decided between Milan and Juventus, as the Dinamo Zagreb starlet’s mother reveals he “always watched Italian football.”

Multiple sources claim the Croatia international is still considering his future, as both Milan and Juventus have agreed terms with Dinamo for €25m.

“I have no preference, I just want Marko to be happy,” his mother Visnja told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“He has always watched Italian football, even as a child: Milan, Juve, all the teams. He’d flick through the channels – Germany, Italian, Spanish – to find the games.

“He is quiet, but has a very strong mentality. He has been training like a professional since the age of eight, even at home. You can tell by the way he recovers from injuries – he always returned far earlier than the doctors predicted.

“He’s an excellent student at school too and one of the few football players who completed his studies. He was always good at languages and learned a few things thanks to football too, as he spoke Portuguese, English and Spanish with his teammates.”
