very promising but have not made real match-winning impacts in stretches of games. with inter and italy's finances the money are decent, but quite pissed moratti/branca cant milk out more from liverpool (carroll 35m gbp). i genuinely hope he will succeed in epl. doubt so looking at his physique. oscar, although small, has very strong upper body strength. need awhile to buff up ala rafael.
moratti branca were taking a lot of flak for selling him but i am genuinely excited with kovacic.
