Luka Modrić became a Real Madrid player exactly 10 years ago today.
In an interview he gave to AS, the Croatian midfielder reflected his time at Los Blancos:
“I have spent 10 seasons here, but I start each one as if it were the first. This year we have already won four titles and we have many challenges ahead of us.”
10 years on, he has no regrets on joining Real Madrid:
Signing for Real Madrid was one of the best decisions of my life. Playing here is a dream that I still don’t want to wake up from.”
Modrić also revealed that the love the fans show towards him motivates him to continue performing at the highest level:
“I feel the affection of the Madrid fans every day. That’s why I try to repay it on the pitch. The Bernabéu is very special to me”.
Over the last 10 years, the 36-year-old has made 436 appearances for Los Blancos and won the Champions League with the club on five separate occasions.
