Real Madrid midfielder Modric could have been star of the Premier League - Carragher

Luka Modric could be one of the Premier League's absolute best players according to Jamir Carragher.

The former Liverpool defender heaped praise on the Croatian midfielder in a column for the Daily Mail, and admits it is unfortunate for England's top flight that he left Tottenham for Real Madrid back in 2012.

“It's such a shame Tottenham could not hold on to Modric," he wrote.

“He would have been a star of the Premier League had he stayed a little longer but, despite firm interest from Chelsea and Manchester United at times, he could not be stopped from going abroad."

Modric starred in Croati's opening Euro2016 win against Turkey with a Man of the Match performance and a stunning goal in their 1-0 win on Sunday.
