Marca: Modric furious with Milan man Rebic during Croatia vs. Spain – the reason

By Isak Möller -

Ante Rebic was a key player for Milan in the second half of this past season, scoring that wonderful goal at Juventus, among other things. However, he certainly wasn’t as successful while on duty for Croatia. 

Croatia faced Spain in the round of 16 at the Euros last night and lost the game, despite coming back from 1-3 to 3-3 in the final minutes. Spain scored twice in extra time and secured the extremely important win.

Rebic was taken off the pitch after just 67 minutes, failing to impress during the game as he had a few chances but missed. There was also another incident he got criticised for, at least by his teammates.

According to Marca, Luka Modric and manager Zlatko Dalic were furious with Rebic as he went to change his boots just before Spain scored their equaliser. Modric, the captain, was convinced that having just ten men affected them in that situation.

Not a good evening for the Milan No.12, therefore, who emotionally collapsed after getting told off by his teammates.

  1. How many times do teams continue play w/ 10 men while waiting for a teammate to come back on, for injury or for whatever reason? It’s like the whole friggin country is angry b/c he changed his boots. I’m petrified that this will damage his confidence for the upcoming season. Also, I wish the coaches would wake up to the fact that he’s NOT a center forward!! But he’s willing to work hard and do what the coaches want and so he gets misused and stuck in an awkward position. At least at Milan he’s playing with players that he has a rhythm and understanding with so he can sometimes be successful when Ibra is injured.

  2. It is idiotic, unfair and wholly unreasonable to blame Ante for Croatia’s loss–which is what many seem to be doing at this time. He gives it his all when many are asleep, he has the biggest heart on the field, and has crazy speed and skills to match.

    He is a scape goat for Croatia’s loss–but many are to blame.

    We love you Ante! Keep up the good work and let’s move on to Champion’s League!!!!!
