‘I would swap some trophies won with Madrid for Croatia’- Modric.

Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric has revealed that he would swap some of his club honours for World Cup glory this summer with Croatia.The 32-year-old former Tottenham Hotspur man has won 14 trophies since joining Madrid back in 2012, and most recently, a third consecutive Champions League title after a victory over Liverpool in Kiev.Modric, who was named Croatian player of the year for a record sixth time early January, and as captain of his country admitted he would trade his successes with Real Madrid for one with Croatia ahead of the World in Russia.‘It was a very hard and long season, in La Liga and the Copa del Rey we did not play as is expected of us,’ he said speaking at the Croatian Players’ Union awards ceremony.‘In the end we won the trophy that is most important. I am happy to be part of this club and this success that will be remembered in history. ‘[But] I would change some of the trophies I’ve won with Madrid for one big success with Croatia!’
