Robert Prosinecki has hailed Luka Modric as the best player ever in Croatia’s history
Croatia has developed a knack for producing talented midfielders over the past few years. The likes Ivan Rakitic, Mateo Kovacic and Allen Halilovic are among a host of players that can count Croatia as their home country. However, according to Robert Prosinecki, Luka Modric is the one who trumps them all. Modric has been hailed as the greatest ever player to dawn the shirt of the Croatian national team.

The former Barcelona and Real Madrid player told Sportske Novosti that Real Madrid’s Galactico was ‘the best’ from all angles. “There is no way of looking at this in which [Modric] doesn’t deserve the title as the best [Croatian] in history,” he said.
Modric Has a Pivotal Role in Real Madrid
Real Madrid marked a high fortune by signing Modric from Tottenham in 2012. Since then, the 32-year-old is serving the middle lineup of the Spanish Giants in the best possible way.
There is a significant role of this player in dishing away the three Champion’s League triumphs. There is surely a material to the argument that Zidane’s side is depending upon the Croatian. Robert Prosinecki has described that as,
“He has three Champions League titles and in all three of them, he was one of Real Madrid’s most important players… On three occasions he was officially picked for the world XI. Even if we leave trophies aside, the way he plays and the way he dominates for Real Madrid is impressive.”
The starlet stays in the Real Madrid until 2020.
Modric has a speciality with the ball. Heis the glue that links the entire team together. His influence is such that he is considered as the most important player in Madrid’s lineup by some, ahead of Ronaldo, Bale and others. Undoubtedly, he is one of the most important players in the lineup of the Los Blancos. He is a good player, who maintains possession in the game. So, he can mean a lot to the team with his talent.
