Video: Mateo Kovacic's Real Madrid career couldn't have gotten off to a worse start

Not to worry Mateo, tomorrow's a brand new day.

Real Madrid's latest signing hasn't really gotten off to the best of starts at his new club. The 21-year-old Croat, who moved from Inter Milan on a 6-year deal made a bit of a blunder addressing the fans and media on Thursday.

Kovacic ended his speech with the phrase ‘Bon dia a tots,' which is Catalan for "Good day, everyone."

Considering the club's arch rivals Barcelona are a Catlunyan outfit, Kovacic's honest mistake wasn't well received by the Madrid faithful.

This comes after Kovacic's driver made a pretty embarrassing error after his first training session at Madrid.

He missed the turn off while leaving the ground and continued driving the wrong way down a one-way road.

Let's hope his first couple of days at his new club aren't an omen for his future in Spain.
