Croatia striker, Ante Budimir has come out to hail the impact of Luka Modric on the Croatian national team. He recently revealed that Modric is always motivated to play against the youngsters.
According to him, the fact that the midfielder still gives his all in training despite all the experience he has garnered over the years proves he is an example to others.
He added that Modric remains a leader for his country and he’ll continue to play at the highest level for a while.
His words, “When we play a game in training, it is usually old against young and he wants to beat the youngsters.”
“We take it very seriously, like a real match. You see those details of wanting to win these games. It is something that motivates you, because you see that he gets serious and says that you have to win.”
“We know the player he is. Seeing how he prepares for training, then also how he performs in games, trying to attack and defend, to be the leader … He is a very good example.”
“He plays at a top level, he has won everything and for him nothing changes, be it in qualifying against Malta or Cyprus, or now against Scotland or England in the European Championship.”
“I really like his preparation before training: he goes to the gym, rests himself, takes care of the details, warms up for the session … You can see that he has concentration for training, that he is prepared; it’s not that he comes out and suddenly plays like a top star.”
