Luka Modric has offered an interview to a newspaper in his country and has not been silent, has spoken from his achievements, even his former partner and has released a criticism of another fellow coach, Cholo Simeone.
Modric criticized Simeone’s “populist theses”. The Croatian said that the Argentine coach “has the need to undermine Real Madrid” in his statements. “I have great respect for Simeone and for the players and fans of a great club like Atlético. When we are victorious, we congratulate them honestly. It is not fair that our successes, among which are two honorable victories in the Champions League against Atlético, are reduced to their constant populist theses about some kind of favors to Real Madrid. He takes advantage of any opportunity to suggest unrealistic actions to explain Madrid’s achievements at the expense of others. ”
The runner-up of the world also commented on the comments of his former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo about the dressing room of Juventus “I’ve been here six and a half years and I can say with certainty that we are the right group: mature people and quality players, good relations and excellent atmosphere. Naturally, there are better and worse days, but the core strength of the group is not questionable, if it were not so, we would not have won all these trophies”.
With regard to those who think he did not deserve the golden ball, Luka made it clear that “Cristiano and Messi are two phenomena that have been playing a dominant role for ten years. Especially for their quality. But here (Golden Ball) we are talking about seasonal performance and it can mean that the votes of coaches, players, football legends, journalists and fans are the same. Or are they all wrong at the same time? If we are going to vote on the quality of the players, it is only necessary to immediately divide all the trophies between Messi and Ronaldo, while they are actively playing and abolishing any election”.
