Real Madrid clinched their 36th league title on Saturday, marking a historic moment for Luka Modric, who played a pivotal role in their victory over Cadiz.

Modric contributed to Real Madrid’s triumph with a solid performance in their 3-0 win against Cadiz, as selected by manager Carlo Ancelotti, who opted to pair him with Dani Ceballos in midfield for the match.

The Croatian midfielder, a legend in his own right, completed the entire game, further solidifying his status in Real Madrid’s history books.

At 38 years and 238 days old, Modric became the oldest outfield player to represent Real Madrid in La Liga, an impressive feat considering the club’s prestigious history and the caliber of players who have graced the team.

This remarkable achievement surpasses the previous record held by Ferenc Puskas since 1965, who was 38 years and 233 days old when he played for Real Madrid.

Since joining the Santiago Bernabeu outfit from Tottenham Hotspur in 2012, Modric has consistently showcased his talent and commitment to the team, earning accolades such as the 2018 Ballon d’Or award along the way.
