'He is the beauty of football': Jose Mourinho proud of bringing one player to Real Madrid

Speaking to Topps UK, Jose Mourinho heaped special praise on Luka Modric.

"Luka Modric is the beauty of football.

"He is my pride because I took him to Real Madrid when nobody believed that he was a player for Real Madrid and after how many years? 12, 13 ,14 years?He's still there, so he's my pride."

The midfielder signed for Madrid back in 2012 on a €42 million transfer from Tottenham Hotspur when Mourinho was still bossing at Bernabeu. There was a certain skepticism around the Croatian's move – some newspapers even went so far as to label him the worst signing of the year. However, time has proven them wrong.

It's 2024, and the 38-year-young Lukita continues to deliver flawless performances one after another. What's more, the player boasts five Champions League titles and a Ballon d'Or in his trophy cabinet, so Jose has every reason to be proud of bringing Modric to Madrid.
