What Real Madrid Fans Chanted To Luka Modric During Leganes Match

Real Madrid fans were in full voice for Luka Modric on Saturday night.

The 'Los Blancos' maintained their perfect start to the new La Liga campaign by thrashing Leganes 4-1.

Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema (x2) and Sergio Ramos all bagged to secure three league points and while Modric didn't get on the score-sheet, he pulled the strings in the middle of the park.

Modric, who was making his first Real Madrid appearance since winning the 'Men's UEFA Player of the Year' award, starred in midfield before being substituted on the hour mark to a standing ovation.

Supporters inside the Santiago Bernabeu raised to their feet and chanted "Lukita, Ballon d'Or".

Not to mention singing the chant leading up to kick-off as well as during the game.

The notion of Modric winning the prestigious Ballon d'Or is endorsed by his teammates including Ramos, who posted a touching message on social media.

He uploaded a picture of himself kissing Modric accompanied with the words: "Now, for the Ballon d'Or".

Modric and Ronaldo are among the favourites to win the 2018 Ballon d'Or following their heroics this year.

However, Modric has not just performed brilliantly for Real Madrid but also for Croatia, which included skippering his country to a World Cup final.
