Kovacic unclear about Chelsea future as he lauds Guardiola.

Mateo Kovacic has revealed that he might look to 'change environment' following a 'really bad season' at Chelsea FC.

Kovacic endured a below-par 2022-23 campaign at Standard Bridge as the Blues, who were managed by Thomas Tuchel, Graham Potter and Frank Lampard, finished 12 in the Premier League standings, 27 points off fourth placed Newcastle United.

The Croatian played 37 times for Chelsea in all competitions this season, scoring once and registering two assists.

Speaking ahead of Croatia's Nations League semi-final against the Netherlands next week, the ex-Real Madrid player confirmed that he might be wearing a different strip next season.

'I have one year left on my contract with Chelsea. It's been a really bad season,' the midfielder admitted.

'Everything indicates that after five years I will change the environment , but we will see what happens.'

Ahead of City's Champions League final against his old club Inter Milan on Saturday, the 29-year-old midfielder said: 'Manchester City is a top team and deserves to be in the Champions League final.

'That's what I have to say. The summer is long, we'll see what happens in the future.'
