Age is just a number for Luka Modric. At 36, when most other players his age have either retired or are playing in lower leagues, the Croatian international continues to inspire Real Madrid and lead from the front.

Earlier this week, it was the veteran’s moment of magic that saw Los Blancos pull off a sensational win over Chelsea in the dying minutes of the game. Time and time again, the world is left astonished by the magic at his feet, even in the twilight of his career.

Modric’s trainer, Vlatko Vucic, was asked about the Real Madrid player’s secret that helps him produce world-class performances consistently. Vucic revealed that the secret ingredient was Modric’s relentless training.

“Ahead of each training session & match, he trains solo on his body to make his muscles more flexible, as if he has springs all over his body,” he said (h/t TheMadridZone).

He won 17 duels vs Chelsea in addition to four tackles, two interceptions and one blocked shot. Needless to say, many young players too, would fail to provide the work rate that the Croatian does.

The 26-year-old’s contract at the club expires in June, and no renewal has been announced yet. The player has offers on the table but wishes to retire at Real Madrid.

The club offer a one year contract to the midfielder, but it remains to be seen if the agreement can be finalized.

Jose Felix Diaz has reported via MARCA that Real Madrid want a major change in the Spanish refereeing system.

The reporter writes that the team from the Spanish capital has taken the issue as their top priority mostly because of what happened in the recent derby defeat against Atletico Madrid

Los Blancos are determined to relentlessly steer a significant overhaul of the refereeing structure, and they have no intention of resting in their pursuit. 

Their discontent comes not only from recent events, particularly the contentious derby match but also from a deep-seated frustration with the state of refereeing itself.

Real Madrid not hiding their discontent

The journalist mentions that Real Madrid are unapologetic about their continuous criticism of the refereeing community, firmly believing that a transformation is of utmost importance.

Even prior to the emergence of the Negreira case, the Merengues had been vocal about their dissatisfaction with those responsible for overseeing the refereeing unit. 

For what it is worth, the revelation of the former vice president of the CTA’s financial ties to Barcelona only solidified Real Madrid’s resolve to advocate for a complete overhaul in referee management.

Real Madrid are suspicious

Real Madrid firmly assert that any influence from Negreira’s historical decisions in certain key positions raises suspicions about the fairness of the competition. 

For that, the management will do everything in its power to achieve a certain level of transparency within the organization that it believes is currently overshadowed by historical baggage.

As of today, Real Madrid continue to voice their concerns through their official channels.

Right now their ultimate goal is to eliminate the involvement of Clos Gomez in VAR decisions, marking the beginning of a long-standing battle they are fighting.
