Former Tottenham coach Tim Sherwood has showered massive praise on Chelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic.

Kovacic has been a top player for the club over the past two seasons, and he has started this current campaign in top form.

In the game against Aston Villa, Kovacic showed his class with a world-class assist from deep for Romelu Lukaku.

Former Spurs interim manager Tim Sherwood has admitted that Chelsea midfielder Kovacic is a world-class player.

“They signed Kovacic when they had the embargo. They took him on loan and made it a permanent afterwards. He’s world-class. He’s got everything. He can dribble. His range of passing is unbelievable. He’s got every club in the bag,” Sherwood said.

Kovacic signed up for Chelsea on a permanent £40million move from Real Madrid back in 2019 after a successful loan in London the previous year.
