“Modric One Of The All Time Best”

Real Madrid star Luka Modric is “one of the best midfielders ever”, according to former AC Milan and Chelsea striker Andriy Shevchenko.

The 40-year-old, who is now manager of the Ukraine national side, knows a thing or two about what it takes to be the best in the business, having scooped the Ballon d’Or back in 2004.

Ahead of a 2018 World Cup qualifier between Ukraine and Croatia, Shevchenko told Goal on the challenge facing his side: “I wish for everything to go very well for us.

“I mean, Croatia have a great team, with such great, talented players.

“[Having] one of the best midfielders ever like Luka Modrić, and playing up front: [Mario] Mandžukić, [Nikola] Kalinić, [Mateo] Kovačic…it’s a strong team.

“We have to be very well prepared, and we play on chances, I think Ukraine have a good chance. We are very strong at home.”
