DID YOU KNOW ?

During the Croatian War of Independence, Luka Modric and his family lived in the village of Modrici near Zadar but they were forced to flee the area when he was 6 years old.

His father, Stipe, was in the Croatian army, and he lost his grandfather in the fighting while his family were refugees, living in a hotel on the island of Iž near Zadar.

After a season with Dinamo Zagreb's youth side, he was loaned out in 2003 to Zrinjski Mostar in the Premier League of Bosnia and Herzegovina. During this spell, he established his versatile style of play and became the Bosnian and Herzegowinian League Player of the Year while still only 18 years old.
