Rebic again impressed for this week's victory over Juve.
“There are two Rebics," he told Sportweek.
“In private I'm very quiet, a little withdrawn because I don't like people talking about me.
“On the pitch there's another Ante, which breaks everyone's b***s. At one point during the win against Juve, I said something to Higuain.
“I'm not a fan of players like him, who are big and strong yet stay down for three minutes whenever they're touched.
“The same goes for Bernardeschi and the same thing happened against SPAL. Ibra takes lots of beatings too but gets up immediately and without a whimper. Others cry too much.
“I say something to Higuain and Szczesny tells me: 'You're 2-0 down, don't get cocky.'
“I didn't answer him. Normally I would've replied, because another thing I don't like is people underestimating me.
“This time, however, I didn't open my mouth. I replied to Szczesny in a different way... I'm strong mentally: whoever attacks me, fires me up."
