    Zlatko Dalic’s side then finished their Qatar campaign with a 2-1 win over Morocco to clinch the bronze medal.

    Upon his return to Croatia, Gvardiol quickly headed to his father’s native village on the Dalmatian coast to celebrate their run to the last four.

    And fans were loving the fact that he rocked up in a tiny Fiat Punto.

    Reacting on social media, one person said: “I’m liking this guy more and more.”

    And his step up to the biggest stage has subsequently seen him linked with the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester United.

    Gvardiol was recently quizzed on the speculation surrounding his future and told The Athletic: “My agent is taking care of this and we will see.

    “Right now, I’m happy in Leipzig. I don’t know, we will see – you never know.

    “You know the stories and these things, but all I can say is that I’m happy in Leipzig and right now I’m going to stay there and perform for them.”

    Gvardiol only signed a new deal with the Bundesliga side three months ago to keep him under contact until 2027.
