Luka Modric praises ‘brother’ Sergio Ramos: ‘He is a 34-year-old rock’

Luka Modric feels that Sergio Ramos is the best central defender in the world. The two have been playing together since the Croatian joined Real Madrid from Tottenham Hotspur in 2012 and in that period they have become good friends. Last week Modric and Ramos clinched the title in LaLiga, their second league title since they have been playing together.

“My brother Sergio is a phenomenon,” Modric told Sportske Novosti. “And I’m not just saying that because in eight years we’ve created a really special relationship, we hang out as families, go on holiday together, or because we’ve had fantastic footballing experiences and successes together.”

“Ramos is a 34-year-old rock, a top-level competitor, and when you watch him working on himself, it’s clear how dedicated he is and how hungry he is for success. He’s a team leader and the best defender in the world.” Modric has one year left on his contract and there have been suggestions that the 34-year-old could be on his way out of the exit at the Santiago Bernabeu
