Zidane shows respect to Modric with incredible gesture during Betis game

27 Sep 2020

Luka Modric replaced Toni Kroos in the first half against Real Betis on Saturday with the German limping off with a potential injury.

Zinedine Zidane patiently waited for the Croat to finish his pre-match ritual of kissing his shin pads before giving out instructions to the 35-year-old.

Modric’s shin guards have a picture of his wife and children on them and the midfielder always kisses them before coming on the pitch – without exemption.
