In an interview with El Partidazo, Real Madrid player Modric talked about his relationship with his grandfather and the death of his grandfather in the war. He said: "When I was a child, I had a very good relationship with my grandfather. Unfortunately, he failed to see me succeed."
Modric said in the interview: "I have a very good relationship with my grandfather, because when my parents go to work, I will stay with my grandfather."
"I feel particularly uncomfortable for what happened. It left a mark on me when I was young. He is an important person to me.
"This has a great impact on me. When I was young, I didn't understand why this happened."
"This matter has been etched in my memory. For example, when people go to him, I know they can't find him."
"This is a very sad situation for all of us, but we survived."
"We always remember him, but unfortunately he didn't see my achievements."
"But I hope he can see it all on it."
