Former Inter Milan coach Andrea Stramaccioni admits he still regrets Mateo Kovacic being sold.

The Croatia midfielder was sold to Real Madrid during Stramaccioni's time in charge of Inter.

The Italian says he has always regarded highly the now Chelsea midfielder.

"He's a player I've always liked, I was in love with of him," recalled Stramaccioni to RAI. "It was an economic opportunity, Real Madrid offered a lot of money for a very young boy.

"On a personal level, I would have kept him."
