Taking to social media [as per AS], the diminutive Croatia international shared a photo taken after the Champions League bout which shows the ex-Tottenham Hotspur superstar—his ratty features beaming—stood alongside the AS Roma great.
“With the great Francesco Totti after the great win yesterday,” Modric began, writing on social media. “Idol.”
Both men featured on Wednesday as Real secured a convincing 2-0 victory away at the Serie A side. Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring in the 57th minute when he touched the ball over Wojciech Szczesny, before Jese added a second in the 86th minute to all but take the tie beyond the Giallorossi.
Modric played the full 90 minutes and was influential, contributing the assist for Los Merengues’ second, while Totti entered as an 87th-minute substitute, replacing fellow Roman Alessandro Florenzi.
