Well, that escalated quickly!
And then the sky absolutely fell on Borna Sosa. All in 96 hours. Sosa snubs Croatia and says playing for Germany is a “business decision.” FIFA comes backs and say, “Sorry man, you are not eligible to play for Germany.”
So I ask you all this: Would you want Sosa to represent Croatia at the top level after all this?
I say yes, but conditionally. He would have to apologize publicly and say that he made a mistake. Germany came knocking and I was frustrated that the Croatian senior team hadn’t called me up yet. Blah blah blah… But it would have to be a real public apology, on the podium, with a microphone. None of this “I’m so sorry” on Instagram stuff.
If he expects to be included in any future Croatian plans automatically, I laugh.
