Born in Zadar, raised in Dinamo Zagreb, became famous at Tottenham, and then transformed into the core of the Champions League three consecutive championships, and there will be a chance to retire in the Real Madrid shirt in the future. Modric's solid player career is the ideal trajectory for most of his peers. If he can say goodbye to the green field in his famous team, it is something that many stars can't ask for.
Today, the front page of the "Marca" gave the Croatian star. In this interview, he also made it clear that he wants to end Real Madrid. In order to achieve this goal, the Golden Globe winner is willing to accept a salary cut. His contract with the Galaxy Battleship will expire in June next year. Last month, the Croatian international just passed his 35th birthday, but he also said in an interview that he still feels that his competitive state is maintained very well, and he is fully capable of being a La Liga giant Contribute another piece of waste heat.
This season, in La Liga, he has played 3 games for Real Madrid, two of which played the whole game, and indeed have enough energy to continue to play for the giants. And Modric and his family also want to stay here: "I have communicated with my wife and children. We love Madrid deeply. This is my home. I hope to renew the contract, but I don’t want this to be a problem for the coach. ."
There is still time before next summer, and the Croatian also gave the club enough room to think about the contract renewal: "It all depends on the club, but I think I can still play a key role here." Real Madrid's contract arrives tomorrow. In fact, the key players in the period are not only Modric, but also Lucas Vazquez and the team's meritorious captain Ramos.
The Spanish media pointed out before that the club’s attitude to renew the contract for an older star like Ramos may be one-year contract. Ramos may not have the heart to accept this contract, but Modric was interviewed by Radio Searle before. It is open to this method of contract renewal. If you renew the contract with the team for one year, the new contract expires in 2022, which happens to be another World Cup year. It is also a suitable choice for Modric who intends to contribute to the Grid Corps in the World Series.
"Marca" also gave a hypothesis that if Modric chooses to retire in 2022, he can perfectly realize his idea of dying in Real Madrid and playing two national team competitions for Croatia. It’s just that the Qatar World Cup kicks off at the end of the following year, which is different from previous World Cups. For those players who intend to fade out of football after the big game, how to deal with the "empty window" of the half-year from the end of the league to the World Cup? Still a problem.
In the interview, the Croatian also talked about the old teammate Bell, who only left the Galacticos this summer. The two first played at Tottenham and then at Real Madrid. They fought side by side for 11 years, during which they accumulated a deep friendship. Taking advantage of the opportunity of the interview, Modric was at odds with the Welsh star: "I have been with him for most of my career. He is a special person. The evaluation of him by the outside world is unfair. People have been selective in recent years. Judge him, but he has made impressive achievements in Real Madrid, and he will be remembered forever by the club as a team merit."
Another point of controversy against Bell was that he had been in Spain for many years, but he was unwilling to learn and use Spanish. Magic flute also took the opportunity of an interview to "refute rumors": "He has no problems in the dressing room, he is a good man. He also speaks Spanish, and he also jokes with us in Spanish. He is just shy. There have been some things in recent years, and the outside world has forgotten what Bell did for the team before. It's just that over time As time goes by, people will remember how important he was to the team. Everyone has his own way of behavior. Bell is like that. He doesn’t have too much contact with his teammates, but in the team’s locker room he is just like Good boy. One thing that makes me sad is that people have forgotten his contributions in recent years."
The Belgian star Hazard, who Real Madrid bought with a lot of money last summer, has not played well with the team so far, and has not even been able to score goals on behalf of the Galaxy Battleship in the game for a year. At the start of the new season, Hazard suffered an injury and the time for the Real Madrid premiere for the new season was also delayed. Modric also called on the outside world to give the players more patience: "The situation is uncomfortable for him. He has proved that he is one of the best in the world. This year I am also sure that he will prove himself. It's just that the injury prevented him. ."
Talking about several major coaches he had worked with during Real Madrid, Modric also commented one by one in the interview: "When Real Madrid signed me from Tottenham, Mourinho played a key role and could only be with him. A year of cooperation is a heartbreaking thing. Ancelotti is an excellent coach, and he is even better off the court. Zidane is a top coach, and there is no need to repeat what we have achieved together. However, judging from the evaluation of the coach, the outside world does not appreciate him enough."
