(Video) Kovacic does not need a settling in period

Mateo Kovacic has settled into Manchester City’s midfield as though he has played with his new teammates for years. He impressed many with his performance against Newcastle on Saturday.

A show of his quality and intelligence in being able to slot right into a Pep team, whereas usually players take a “settling in period”.

Perhaps unsurprising for a bloke with multiple Champions League’s.

His partnership alongside Rodri is looking like it could be successful for years to come. Certainly on the right tracks.

Both Kovacic and Rodri behind Foden was exciting to watch and at times looked incredibly fluid.

The Croatian midfielder was also involved in the build up to the only goal of the game. A crucial victory during a fixture that looked a tricky one for the Blues.
