“Modric is a leader, a number one, both in the world and in Croatia,”
“He is a faithful player, physically he is very powerful, and his performances in the last few matches, in La Liga and the Champions League, show this.
“He must continue at Real Madrid, and hopefully he will play for Madrid for many more years, but the last word is for the coach club directors.”
