Modric hails ZZ influence

Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric believes Zinedine Zidane’s squad rotation and man-management skills are crucial behind the club’s success.

The French Coach has won two Champions League titles and a La Liga title in his first 18 months in charge at the Bernabeu, with the Croatian midfielder playing a starring role in those successes.

"He has done great things since he arrived. He made sure we were a team, that we all contributed,” Modric is quoted as saying by AS.

"Honestly, I was a bit sceptical that he could satisfy the needs of all the players, but he has done that with everyone.

"We have a young team – Ronaldo, [Sergio] Ramos, [Keylor] Navas and me are all 31 or 32, but there are some 10 years younger, so Madrid can remain on this dominant path.”
