Domagoj Vida is an 18-year old NK Osijek midfielder who is currently playing for the U-21 Croatian national team. He was just offered a transfer from English Premiership juggernaut Liverpool FC but refused the invitation. Domagoj said that he would rather improve his skills in Croatia than sit on the bench in England- and who can blame him? To be quite honest, I had no idea this kid even existed until I read this article on Goal.com. But for a kid to turn down guaranteed money at such a young age is really something- especially from a worlclass team like Liverpool.
Just keep your eyes open because I’m sure he’ll be making news from the national side before we know it; not to mention another huge transfer opportunity once he gets some more recognition.
