Inter Milan midfielder Kovacic: Football is my life

Inter Milan midfielder Mateo Kovacic says football is "my life".

Kovacic chatted with fans during a Twitter Q&A.

"Football is my life. I love the game and am happy when I'm playing. I started when I was five years old," explained the Croatia international on Inter's official Twitter feed.

"I've only ever wanted to be a footballer. I never imagined doing anything else. It was my childhood dream to play in a World Cup, but unfortunately we didn't play as well as we could have.

"My favourite position is anywhere in midfield. Perhaps in the hole behind two strikers. Who am I most similar to? I think of Luka Modric and Andres Iniesta."
