It was a big day for footballer’s weddings yesterday, with the Real Madid captain tying the knot in a mega ceremony at which AC/DC performed, but also in Croatian where Croatian national team player and Atalanta central midfielder, Mario Pašalić married his long-term girlfriend Marija Grbeša.
Pašalić, who is a lifetime fan of Hajduk Split, married Grbeša in the church of Ciovo, and the guests were then moved to a sailboat where they celebrated long into the night.
Pašalić is actually a Chelsea player but is on loan to the Seria A club Atalanta. He began his career at Hajduk Split before moving to Chelsea for a reported £3 million in 2014. Chelsea loaned him to Elche, Monaco, Milan, Spartak Moscow and then Atalanta. Pašalić made his senior international debut for Croatia in 2014.
