Croatia star, Luka Modric has stated FIFA does not care about players, after they were made to play Kosovo over two days. A match they won 1-0.
The match was abandoned after 22 minutes of play, due to a downpour that rendered the pitch unplayable on Saturday.
A day later, the sides met and it took Croatia 74 minutes to find a goal, after raining attacks on Kosovo.
Croatia are currently top of the table and will have to face Turkey in two days. And Modric delivered a furious account of how the game was restarted.
He told reporters: “Last night we got information the match will not be played. Of course, you go to bed a little later and then in the morning they woke us all up like they would in the army!
“Of course, we didn’t have good preparation for the match.
“FIFA showed they don’t care about the players, the only thing that mattered to them was the match to be played.
“On Saturday, it was hard to play at that pitch but no one seemed to care. If they did care, they would have postponed the Turkey – Croatia game to Wednesday.
“On Saturday, I didn’t want to play further and the referee told me he was against it from the beginning. During those 20 minutes, there were more situations for funniest home video than serious football!”
