Rakitic: Modric is a step ahead

15 September 2012 15:26

Ivan Rakitic has praised the qualities of Luka Modric, claiming that the new Real Madrid signing's vision separates him from his peers.

The midfielder completed a 33 million-euro transfer to the Santiago Bernabeu from Tottenham in August and has already made a favourable impression on the Spanish champions' fans.

Speaking prior to Sevilla's encounter with Real in La Liga on Saturday, Rakitic took the opportunity to applaud the playmaking abilities of his Croatia team-mate.

"Modric is a great player, he is different from the rest. He thinks before others," Rakitic told AS.

"If 'The Special One' signed him, there is little to discuss."
