This FM 2013 player profile of Mateo Kovacic shows just how quick the young Croatian can be. And I’m not just talking about his pace and acceleration, Kovacic seems to have the ability to speed up and slow down the tempo of any game. His future screenshot from 2018 does no justice as human management would see his passing far better and his general technique improve. One thing is for sure, this kid has a brain for Football and knows exactly what to do in the middle of the pitch, just a shame he moved to Inter as the asking price now rises too £15 million.

Best buy rating: 8.5/10

    Imo the most complete AMC in the game. And a total bargain!

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 27, 2012

      Yeah definitely, he’s got a bit of everything and can develop beyond what is shown here with human management.

  • comment avatar Heresy December 5, 2012

    Seems Kovacic isn’t as highly rated this year. Which is a shame, I loved him in the previous version of FM.. He’s still amazing for the price and perhaps with human management and a bit more attention, he can turn out world class anyway.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 5, 2012

      He can certainly develop beyond the screenshot shown with good human management, but I agree, he seems to have dipped from the amazing wonderkid we knew in FM12.

  • comment avatar Mihail V December 7, 2012

    This is actually strange.
    He has improved in reality his defensive skills.

    He plays more like a CM them AMC.
    Also i don’t think he is 174 cm tall any more.
    Maybe SI should speak more with the croatian scouts for a more accurate report

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 7, 2012

      I don’t know the player to comment on that but when SI scout tens of thousand of players with each player requiring detail on hundreds of areas I think we can allow them a little slack for this one if you are right…I think there will always be differences from game to RL, its just the nature of the game they create.

  • comment avatar Mihail V December 7, 2012

    I think the most accurate reports should be on every league young talents and top players.

    And when you call your game “the most realistic football management” there is a lot about reality.

    Criticism is good and we should not be annoyed by it if it is well intentioned.

    Believe me when i say that most of the people don’t care about 90% of the croatian league but they care about this boy wonder or Halilovic.

    Have a nice day!

      Who said anyone was annoyed? And Football Manager is the most realistic Football Management simulation around, its just not perfect which they never claim it is.

      • comment avatar Mihail V December 7, 2012

        Nothing is perfect but i don’t understand your negativism.
        I am saying something is wrong and your are saying nothing is perfect.

        They should make a better scout report on this player! What is your problem with this statement?

        I can say the sky is blue but i don’t see the relevance.

        Or better please don’t answer , everything is just PINK.

        • comment avatar Darren Smith December 7, 2012

          You’re seriously over thinking this, my answer wasn’t negative. You expressed your opinion on the player and I said I don’t see him in real life so couldn’t comment on it…I was also just suggesting that we can’t expect SI to get everything right thats all. Again, I have no problem with what you are saying, I’m sure your right, I’m just saying I don’t have a problem with SI misjudging the odd the player seen as they do so much with such a huge database.

          I was merely offering my opinion, I wasn’t slating yours which is what you seem to be doing.

  • comment avatar Nicholas January 31, 2013

    big congratulation to Intermilan.they’ve got a most brilliant AMC.wish he’s as good as the one in the game

    • comment avatar Darren Smith January 31, 2013

      Yeah just a shame he will be unbuyable at the start of the game come SI’s patch release.

  • comment avatar Luke Biggs August 25, 2013 Here is how developed him, showing the sort of player he can become..

  • comment avatar vjcsmoke October 23, 2013

    Even at age 22 Kovacic is already a beast. He’s so good he forced Gotze over to AMR in my Atletico Madrid save. My front 4 is devastating with Bale AML, Kovacic AMC, Gotze AMR, Jovetic ST. I can only imagine how awesome Kovacic will be by age 25.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 23, 2013

      Those are some impressive attributes, he is a real monster when managed well.
