Luka Modric has just bagged a brand new trophy for his already stacked cabinet.
Real Madrid have now officially confirmed that their Ballon d’Or winner has also won the 2019 Golden Foot award, which recognises the best player who is also aged over 28 and who stands out on account of their on-field achievements.

Even though Modric hasn’t really been a standard part of Los Blancos’ ongoing 2019/20 campaign, having only tallied 484 minutes across all competitions so far, his overall influence on the club cannot be disputed and this award serves as proof enough.
And of course, it didn’t really take long for many of Real Madrid fans to swarm their social media and Twitter accounts with great messages of support, with the majority showering Modric with praise in the process.
Some were calling him a legend and wishing for him to retire at the club while others stated that he has fully deserved this trophy.

Each goal more special than the other.
Luka Modrić is amazing, and having him share all his peak years with us is a blessing on its own. Hope he retires here, just fitting for a player like Luka to hang his boots as a Real Madrid player. Living Legend!! https://t.co/nGZqGVybaU
