Croatia’s Luka Modric is still a masterclass for Real Madrid

Luka Modric

Luka Modric is a Croatian midfield maestro playing for Real Madrid is still magnificent at the age of 36 years old.

Luka Modric is having a magnificent campaign as he is playing with a duel ability to build play from the back and create danger around the opposition penalty area is fundamental to the team’s coherence and fluidity.

There is no other opinion to point out that Manchester City is looking at Real Madrid as a big threat in their campaign for advancing to the champion’s league final. This is mainly because they are having some great performances on their back.

Karim Benzema is having a spectacular season for Real Madrid this season. Considering his performances with consecutive hat-tricks against Paris St-Germain and Chelsea suggests the 34-year-old France striker is ready to inherit the ‘Mr Champions League’ mantle from former team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo.

Don’t forget Benzema as he is not Real’s only 30-something star who keeps getting better with age, because he is having great chemistry and support of the midfield maestro Luka Modric, who is now 36 years old and having a masterclass campaign this season.

And it will be harsh to miss out on the glorious assist of the Croat to Rodrygo with the outside of his right foot to force extra time in the quarter-final second leg against Chelsea. These performances have forced Manchester city to think out of the box and get a solid plan if they really wanted to advance to the final of this season’s champions league.

After all these performances, Croatia’s Luka Modric is yet someone who is sung all-around at the moment. That moment of magic was dubbed the “pass of the decade” by former Rangers striker Ally McCoist, while fellow pundit Rio Ferdinand declared it should be “illegal”. Spanish sports newspaper Marca wrote: “With Modric on the pitch, nothing is impossible. Build him a statue now!”

The president of Real Madrid, Florentino Perez, is also among those who sang praises in favour of the Croatian midfield maestro and said:

Modric should be considered for another Ballon d’Or after shining against Athletic Bilbao in January’s Spanish Super Cup final.

Part of what lies behind the long list of tributes to Modric is a sense that it simply shouldn’t be possible for him to consistently perform so brilliantly at the age of 36.

Modric is playing with his full of energy and enthusiastic approach. Despite covering around 10.54 kilometres, that’s more than any other Real Madrid player, the viewers can still feel the sense of incredibility and physical condition which gives a sigh of relief and motivation to many young players.

It’s really amazing to know that Luka Modric is only a year younger than the father of his teammate, the winger, Rodrygo. And the more interesting fact is that the pair have jokingly adopted the respective nicknames ‘son’ and ‘dad’ for each other, with Rodrygo, even wishing his team-mate a happy Father’s Day on social media last month.

All praises to his magnificent physical abilities and hard work that he exerted all his life. And now it’s paying him back what Luka really deserves.
