Niko Kranjčar: Shilling & Strange Women

Pause for a moment, Kickettes, and feast your eyes on Niko Kranjčar’s reaction to our Croatian correspondent’s unscheduled entry** (via the window, on a rope, blind with lust or possibly the previous evening’s make-up) into Wednesday’s Adidas Predator launch in Zagreb.
After he’d recovered, and our intrepid reporter had taken advantage of the on-site medical facilities, he broke away from boot porn banter to talk about his private life and plans for the future. You can just stare at his tousled beauty for the rest of your life (you can, we tried it) but we recommend you follow the jump for information vital to any decent stalking campaign.

Let’s get the tough stuff out of the way early, shall we? When asked how he’s enjoying fatherhood, Niko told reporters how much he enjoys being a dad and finds little difficulty in balancing both his career and family life. After being pressed by the journos as to whether he and wife Simona plan to have more kids, Niko offered a shy smile. Sigh.
When asked whether he had thought about possible careers Niko shunned the usual post baller routine of pundit, product shiller or contestant on a celebrity dancing show and revealed he quite fancies doing a uni degree, maybe in economics, since he likes ‘adding and deducting’. We’re guessing that sounded better in Croatian?
He also might consider coaching, but admitted that he and his family have made no firm decision about whether they will return to Croatia after his professional football playing career is over.
At this point, our rep attempted to persuade him that Croatia was the place to be**, overcoming her myriad injuries to launch herself at him whilst removing clothing and bandages. She was led away and therefore missed the rest of the presser, but we doubt much happened after that.
Worth going though, no?
