Zlatko Dalić hopes Luka Modrić continues with Croatia until Euro 2024

Zlatko Dalić is hopeful that Luka Modrić will continue representing Croatia beyond the World Cup, report Mundo Deportivo.

In his pre-match press conference prior to Croatia’s match against Morocco for third place, Dalić was asked about the possibility of the 37-year-old continuing to captain the national team and lead them in Euro 2024:

“I hope he’ll be there. He is pretty sure he will be there, but he will have to decide personally, depending on how he feels. I personally think he will be there but in the end it’s his decision.”

Despite his age, Modrić continues to be a fundamental piece in the Croatia starting XI and has played a key role in helping the side reach the semi-finals of the World Cup.

The midfielder will return to Madrid after a few days’ holiday following the World Cup and he is expected to begin contract renewal discussions with Los Blancos’ board.
