Real Madrid The Croatian turned 35
Luka Modric turned 35 on Wednesday and Sergio Ramos took to social media to send an emotive message to his team-mate.
The two Real Madrid players have shared a same dressing room since the Croatian midfielder’s arrival from Tottenham Hotspur in 2012.
“The Croatian grandfather continues to have his birthday,” Ramos wrote on Instagram, accompanied by a picture of him with Modric.
“I hope we share many more laughs, assists, trophies and good times.
“Happy birthday, brother!
“You are loved, Luka Modric.”
Ramos and Modric have won several trophies together at Los Blancos, including four Champions Leagues.
