The player has been an integral part of the team, thereby helping the team achieve major successes over the past several years on a regular basis. The player however has been under some sort of question with his increasing age. Modric this had his views on his current position in the team and how he feels about it.
Modric is keen to have gametime and not be out in the times to come
Luka Modric who has been going strong even at the age of 38 has been absolutely brilliant on the pitch. The player with the passage of time and an increasing age, has not shown any major signs of decline under any circumstances. What is of greatest surprise to everyone is his keen desire to continue thriving on the football pitch at the top level even now after such a long and tiring career at the senior level.
Modric said,”“I don’t want to be out… I just want to play, if necessary every 3 days, because I feel physically well”.“Everything that happens around me is a normal process so I simply accept it like that. I have to mentally prepare for this situation. Accept and move on”.
