Head to news.icons.com now and read the thoughts of @icons_ceo, Dan Jamieson, as we celebrate adding our latest superstar signing, Luka Modric, to the every-growing list of Ballon d'Or winners who have signed for Icons.com.
Luka was kind enough to invite us into his home in Madrid at the start of the month and he even let members of our team hold his actual Ballon d'Or award. The Croatian keeps the golden gong on a shelf next to a multitude of FIFA and UEFA Team of the Year awards, UEFA Champions League medals, mini La Liga and Copa del Rey trophies and, perhaps most noticeably, a small section of one of the goal nets from the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, the scene of his third UCL title with Real Madrid.
The midfield maestro was in good spirits during the signing, effortlessly chatting away in three different languages. He told our team of his excitement for the upcoming Super Bowl, featuring his favourite team, the New England Patriots and was surprised to learn that former boss Harry Redknapp had won a UK reality TV show. Not once did he strike us as anything but the laidback football genius we were expecting to meet. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The full range of Luka Modric signed memorabilia from this session is available to buy now – exclusive to Icons.com. It includes special edition Real Madrid shirts with gold Ballon d'Or printing and a range of signed photos, boots and balls.
