Kranking up the pressure

Niko Kranjcar has played against some of the best footballers in the world. But who are his most respected opponents?

That's just one of the questions faced by our Croatian midfielder who is in the ‘Onside' hot seat in this month's hotspur. So who does he opt for?

Niko regularly plays against some of the world's best in the Premier League. Yet the two top men he selects were met at international level.

"Lionel Messi and Xavi," he tells hotspur. "I played against Messi in an international friendly and his footballing ability is amazing, particularly his dribbling at pace and the precision of his finishing.

"I also really admire Xavi because of the way he dictates games and has been with the same club (Barcelona) since he was young."

Find out more about Kranjcar as he looks back on his early life in Croatia, his favourite goal and his best game. Two of the matches he selects were for Spurs. It's all in the March issue of hotspur magazine - out now.
