Croatian young star Krizmanic is catching the eye

Croatian Young Star Krizmanic Is Catching The Eye

We scout a lot in Croatia and the surrounding areas where perhaps bargains are still to be had. We have ha several Croatian players, Harry Redknapp said he loved them, they worked hard and didn't complain.

The most notable is probably Luka Modric who left us to join the world's number one club, with whom he promptly won the UEFA Champions League, netting Spurs an extra £5-million bonus.

We have tried without success to buy several players in the meantime and there is another making waves out there, earning rare reviews. He is Tomislav Krizmanic who is captain of the Croatian Under-15 side.

The Dynamo Zagreb teenager won the Player of Tournament trophies at the Under-15 Nike Premier Cup, held last month and won by Dynamo Zagreb and the Under-15 Iserlohn Tournament won by Borussia Dortmund in January. You can read a tournament report by translating this page.

The Iserlohn tournament contained 11 Bundesliga sides, Borussia Dortmund, performed more FC Schalke 04, VfB Stuttgart, VfL Bochum, Hamburger SV, Bayer Leverkusen, FC Cologne, Borussia Mönchengladbach, Werder Bremen, Eintracht Frankfurt, Hannover 96 and second division side Fortuna Dusseldorf. In addition FC Basel, Rapid Vienna and PSV Eindhoven also took part. To be named Player of the Tournament is some achievement.

Just a few days ago he was in the Croatian Under-15's lineup that defeated the USA 2-1 in the opening match of the 2016 Tournament Delle Nazioni in Slovenia.

He is a youngster we will be watching closely to see if this initial promise develops as he goes through the age groups. Scouting players is often an investment for the future.
