Speaking in quotes picked up by Marca, Luka Modric discussed playing against Roma legend Francesco Totti.
“Totti is one of the players I liked most because of his way and his style of playing football. Playing against him was really impressive. For me, swapping shirts and talking to him was a special moment.”
On how long he has left in the game
“I don’t know… until I’m 40 maybe. We’ll see. I have to take it step by step and enjoy what I’m doing. I feel good physically, which is important, and mentally too. I’m at a very big club, the best club in the world without any doubt and I’m working to maintain this level as long as possible.
“Let’s see how long it will be but talking about years is very difficult. Now I’m almost 37 and I feel really good. I’ve also worked away from the club to find out where I can improve, where I can maintain my physique.”
