Ahead of Real Madrid’s UEFA Super Cup clash against Eintracht Frankfurt on Wednesday, Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric has declared age doesn’t matter.

Modric will turn 37 this season but the Croatian midfielder is not bothered by his age as it won’t affect his performances on the pitch.

Speaking ahead of Real Madrid’s European Super Cup tie with Eintracht Frankfurt, Modric said:

“I don’t see anything different this year, I have always said that age does not matter, it matters what you do on the pitch and that is the most important thing. You don’t have to look at the age, I feel very good playing.

“The manager knows that I like to play, I feel good playing, I want to give the maximum to the team in every aspect. A World Cup in the middle of the season does not change anything, I have to be ready, train well and be at the disposition of the manager.”
