[VIDEO] Kovač: ‘Modrić Fit for Norway in March’

lmNiko Kovač is optimistic that his most important player will be ready for Croatia’s next Euro 2016 qualifier against Norway next month…

Kovač says that midfielder Luka Modrić, who has not played a game of football since limping off against Italy last November with a thigh muscle injury, should be fit for the 28 March encounter in Croatia.

“I am in constant touch with him and from what he told me, I conclude that he’ll be fully fit for the match”, Kovač told 24sata.

“He’s told me he’s doing much better and will resume training with a ball and the rest of the Real Madrid team shortly. Right now he’s still having treatment and is restricted to working out in the gym”, Croatia’s coach said.
