Bayern Munich II’s 17 year-old Croatian Gabriel Vidović is on fire! Vidović scored a brilliant goal Tuesday night for Bayern II in a 1-1 draw against Bayreuth. The teenage attacking midfielder now has nine goals and seven assists in 15 matches for his side. According to Kicker, a popular German media outlet, Vidović has impressed Bayern Munich’s staff with his performances this season, hinting at a call-up to the club’s senior team in the near future. Vidović could become the second Croatian to appear for Bayern Munich’s first team this season after performing well for the feeder club, following in the footsteps of 21 year-old defender Josip Stanišić. Bayern supporters around the world are pleased with Vidović’s form for Bayern Munich II and hope to see him playing alongside Bayern greats Robert Lewandowski, Thomas Muller, and Serge Gnabry in the attack this season.
Vidović has appeared twice for the Croatia U-21 squad. Although he is goalless in both appearances, Vidović has scored twice for Croatian youth teams: U-17 and U-19. Vidović is known for his tight ball control in the final third and sharp finishing abilities. As Luka Sučić begins to play for the Croatian senior side, expect Vidović to appear more for the U-21 squad. Keep him on your radar!
