World Cup: Luka Modric names his greatest player ever

Luka Modric of Croatia and Real Madrid has picked his greatest player between Lionel Messi and late football icon, Diego Maradona.

According to Modric, Maradona is the greatest player ahead of La Albiceleste’s Lionel Messi.

Maradona and Messi are constantly suggested as being the greatest players of all time.

The 37-year-old Modric has played multiple times against Messi and can tell so much about the Argentina captain.

But Modric told ESPN Argentina that Maradona was the better of the two.

“For me, Maradona is the greatest. Maradona and Leo are the two greats, but Diego is Diego,” he said.

Maradona played 490 official club games during his 21-year professional career, scoring 259 goals.

He also played 91 times for Argentina, scoring 34 goals.

Modric led Croatia to the round of sixteen of the FIFA World Cup in Qatar on Thursday after his side’s goalless draw against Belgium.
