A Ballon d’Or, five Champions Leagues, three Leagues, and Modric himself are all with him when he walks into the Teatro Real. He won 23 titles with Real Madrid all together. It takes a lot to play 507 games in a white shirt and 987 games as a professional. He is one of the Gala’s key stars because of this. He scored his 38th goal with the team he joined when he was 27 years old, in a game against Villarreal the day before. At age 38, he is now one of the most well-known and admired people in football. Many fans cheer for Madrid on the grounds where he plays because he has had a long and perfect career. The fact that his teammates celebrated with him after scoring the last goal against Villarreal shows how important he is to the team.
The Balkan is talking with Tomás Roncero as they walk through the basement of the Teatro Real on their way to the gala. A big smile lights up his face. This year is very important to him. The good things that happen on the field and the way his teammates, and sometimes teammates from other teams, respond to him are not a secret to him. He finally gets to his place. Pilar Alegría, who is the Minister of Education and Sports, greets him there. He also says that he is a fan. While the gala starts, Modric still has to wait because, as is usual for big things, his award is the last one given out. Now it’s his turn. Bernabé Mohedano, who is in charge of media and digital marketing for the Santander Group, gives him the award.

“Good night, everyone.” Modric speaks, already with the AS award in his hand. “First, I want to congratulate the other winners. It is a pleasure to be here with so many high-level athletes. Many thanks to AS for this award. It is an honor to receive recognition from such an important medium. I am very grateful to the fans for everything, but also to all the coaching staff I have had and to all my teammates. The Champions League? It would be incredible to win it again. Leipzig is doing very well in its league. But first, we have the league and the cup, and we have to focus on that.”

Susana Guasch wants to take advantage of the transcendence of the character, and her journalistic instinct comes out. “I would renew it for ten years,” she says with grace. “And what are you going to do?” But Modric already has that speech very well learned. “Thank you very much! This is not the time to talk about this. I am living in the present, focused on what I have now. Let’s see what happens in the future. I try to enjoy every day and every training session. My mood is very good. “I am in the best club in the world.” And finally, he has to talk about the injury problems that have plagued Madrid in recent times. “We have a bad streak. I want to send a lot of encouragement from here to everyone, especially David [Alaba], which is the most recent. It’s not easy for us, but we’re hanging in there, and we’re doing well. We hope to continue like this until the end.” “Whatever you do,” Guasch closes, “it will be fine, because this has no color with you.” And the audience breaks into applause, which serves as a tribute to the Croatian genius.

With 23 titles won with the white team, he is only two away from the 25 that Marcelo and Benzema won, the most in Real Madrid history… And with four titles still at stake this season for Ancelotti’s men: the League, Champions Cup, and Spain Supercup,. He has it within reach. Together with Kroos, they have formed a legendary couple in the midfield of the last decade, the driving force behind Madrid, which has won five European Cups in recent years. A genius with a small body but a giant figure who has already become a legend in the history of Real Madrid in his own right. And at the Teatro Real, he received well-deserved recognition from Diario AS.
