Real Madrid

Modric: I don’t know when I’ll play until, maybe until I’m about 40

Luka Modric continues to prove any doubters he might still have wrong, as he is still a vital player for Real Madrid at the age of 36.

The veteran remains one of the top midfield players in the world and has no plans to stop just yet, confident he still has plenty to offer, and who could argue based on his performances this season?

Speaking at the launch of the ‘Sportening’ app, in which he is an investor, Modric spoke about his career and about how he has worked to keep playing despite his advancing years.

“I don’t know when I’ll keep playing until, maybe about 40, we’ll see,” said Modric.

“I have to take it step-by-step, enjoy what I’m doing. I feel good physically, which is important, mentally as well. I’m at a huge club, the best club in the world without a doubt, and I’m working hard to keep my level as high as possible.

“We’ll see how long it is, but talking about years is difficult. I’m almost 37 and I feel great to be honest. I’ve worked outside of Valdebebas and the club’s facilities to find out where I can improve, where I can stay on top physically.”

The Croatian isn’t making any retirement plans, then, and he said he doesn’t have any plans for the future at all. As he approaches a decade in a Real Madrid shirt, he’s just enjoying the moment.

“In my time at Real Madrid I’ve achieved more than I expected or hoped for, because it’s been almost 10 years now in this dream,” said Modric.

“It would be difficult to write down everything that’s happened to me in these 10 years. Also, my relationship with the club is perfect, and with the fans, too.

“From the first moment, they have taken to me and trusted me, supported me, and that has helped me achieve everything I have and to keep going.”
