Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel expressed his admiration for Mateo Kovacic's commitment to the club.
The German-born tactician took over at Stamford Bridge last month after the sack of Frank Lampard and he has been able to turn their fortunes around.
Tuchel has guided the Blues to five wins and just one draw - conceding one goal since his arrival late last month while they have now moved to fourth on the table with 42 points.
Kovacic was impressive for the London club during their 2-0 win over Newcastle United on home turf and the former PSG boss didn't mince words when he showered encomium on the Croat.
