Mateo is in fact married to Izabel Andrijanic, who has since changed her last name to Kovačić. She is the founder of Lunilou sustainable and slow fashion brand based in Croatia. The pair are happily married and were married in 2017.
Despite being so successful on the pitch, Mateo is a quiet and reserved person away from the game. He is focused on continuing his development as a footballer and representing Croatia for many years to come.
Who is Mateo Kovačić?
Mateo Kovačić is a Croatian professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Premier League club Chelsea and the Croatia national team (despite being born in Austria). He began his career with Dinamo Zagreb before joining Inter in 2013. After two seasons at Inter Milan he made the move to Real Madrid before joining Chelsea in 2018, at first on loan before making the move permanent.
Kovačić is known for his industrious and efficient style of play. He keeps Chelsea’s football ticking over in the engine room, and has won plaudits for his ability to break up opposition attacks and create chances for his teammates.
Despite being so successful on the pitch, Kovačić remains a humble and shy person away from the game. He is a quiet but committed family man who is focused on continuing his development as a footballer and representing Croatia for many years to come.
Kovačić has already achieved so much at such a young age, and it will be interesting to see what he can achieve as he continues his career at Chelsea. Here’s to hoping that his success continues for many years to come.
