Carlo Ancelotti (director of Real Madrid): Nobody represents the values of this club, both on and off the pitch, better than Modric. Luka, affectionally nicknamed Lukito in Spain, has his great Croatian counterparts in some other collective sports: Ivano Balić in handball, Toni Kukoč in basketball, and several Croatian giants in waterpolo. Luka is happily married to Vanja b. Bosnić (on the photo): they have three children.
