Real Madrid fans were in full voice for Luka Modric on Saturday night.
The ‘Los Blancos’ maintained their perfect start to the new La Liga campaign by thrashing Leganes 4-1.
Modric, who was making his first Real Madrid appearance since winning the ‘Men’s UEFA Player of the Year’ award, starred in midfield before being substituted on the hour mark to a standing ovation.
Supporters inside the Santiago Bernabeu raised to their feet and chanted “Lukita, Ballon d’Or”.
Not to mention singing the chant leading up to kick-off as well as during the game.
The notion of Modric winning the prestigious Ballon d’Or is endorsed by his teammates including Ramos, who posted a touching message on social media.
He uploaded a picture of himself kissing Modric accompanied with the words: “Now, for the Ballon d’Or”.
Modric and Ronaldo are among the favourites to win the 2018 Ballon d’Or following their heroics this year.
We have to ask, do you see the Croat popping his former teammate to the Ballon d’Or
