Speaking at a recent media appearance, former Real Madrid star and club legend Luis Figo has sung praises of veteran midfielder Luka Modric.

The former Portuguese international lauded the 38-year-old superstar for the way he continues to defy age and continue to perform at the highest level.

Despite having turned 38 years old earlier this month, Modric continues to be an elite performer for club and country.

While it is true that his role has taken a marginal hit this season, the midfielder showed his class and quality in the game against Getafe just before the international break.

And, speaking to RTL, Figo had some special words of praise for Modric, as he said:

“Luka is a good friend, I have nothing but words of praise for him, not only as a professional but also as a person.

“It’s amazing what he does at his age, as if he runs on batteries, because of the talent he constantly shows. I’m satisfied that he’s happy doing what he loves and I hope that he will continue to succeed.”

The former Real Madrid and Barcelona superstar was then asked to choose between his compatriot and another Los Blancos legend Cristiano Ronaldo and Modric, to which he replied:

“They are different, they are very good friends, I will not choose one because then one would lose. They are the best in the world in their positions, they wrote history and continue to write history, and that is the most important thing.”

Modric signed a new contract with Real Madrid earlier this year to continue at the club for one more season.

But things have not started well for the Croatian as he has found himself warming the benches more often than not, a situation that has certainly not pleased him.

However, the 38-year-old remains committed to turning his situation around at the Santiago Bernabeu in the weeks to come.

Real Madrid’s attacking unit has been crippled by the loss of Karim Benzema earlier in the summer, which was followed by the loss of Vinicius Jr due to injury.

Although Vinicius has returned, there is much left to be desired from the Madrid frontline as we progress through to the season.

Real Madrid, though, are waiting on the arrival of Endrick. The young Brazilian is set to join the Real Madrid squad in the summer of 2024 when he turns 18.

Real Madrid impressed by Endrick

Endrick has already started his preparation for his pending move to Santiago Bernabeu, having performed exceptionally well in his native Brazil this year.

The youngster is constantly working on his game, in order to further improve himself as an attacker. It has left Real Madrid quite happy and eager for his arrival, reports Fabrizio Romano.

The journalist claims that Real Madrid have been keeping close tabs on everything Endrick has been doing, on and off the pitch, at Palmeiras.

And they have received very good reports on the 17-year-old, with the club impressed by how he is putting efforts to improve himself both performance-wise and in other facets.

Despite there being some question marks over his performances, the teenage forward is starting to showcase his potential, having scored five goals in five starts for Palmeiras.

Endrick also learning new languages

Endrick is not only just working on his performance. In fact, the Brazilian is also learning other languages in order to quickly settle into life in Spain.

The youngster can speak Portuguese, but he may have to master Spanish during his time at Santiago Bernabeu.

As mentioned earlier, Endrick can already speak Portuguese, which should go a long way in helping him team up with fellow Brazilians Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo.

Even Eder Militao can speak Portuguese, which should make it easier for Endrick to adapt to life in Spain, at least for the next year or so.
