The 32-year-old Croatian footballer recently received a special Croatian fan mail from a young fan named Selena who is suffering from cancer. The 5-year-old girl was helped by her mother in writing the fan message which is truly touching.

The text of the letter goes as follows:

“Dear Luka, my mother is writing this letter because I’m 5-years old & do not know how to write. You’re the best player in the world. I love watching you & you don’t play dirty like others do. I love you very much & are the most important thing in the world.”
Letter received by Luka Modric.

Luka Modric recently finished the season with his club Real Madrid as Champions of Europe for the third consecutive time and also  finished second in the FIFA World Cup 2018 where he captained his national side Croatia against France in the final. Luka Modric was awarded the Golden Ball for being the best player of the World Cup 2018 and is also one of the favorites to win the Balon d’Or 2018 after his consistent performances throughout the season.

Luka Modric was quick to respond to his special fan who is battling a life threatening disease. The response has gone viral now and fans of the midfielder can’t stop drooling over his kind gesture. He is already seen in a good light for his personality and style of play. Such actions off the field have been the reason why the game is regarded as “The Beautiful Game”.  Luka Modric sent a handwritten letter to Selena in Croatian which translates to:

“Dear Selena, I got your lovely letter which made me very happy. Just as you root for me & Croatia, that’s how we fight for you. Because of brave fans like yourself – we always give our all on the pitch. You’re always with us. Greeting & hugs from the heart, yours Luka.”
In Croatia, Luka Modric is already considered as the best player of all times to pull on the checked jersey, and after he navigated his national side to the first World Cup final ever in the history of their 27 years since independence, he is now only second to God.
This is not the first time that a special fan has been treated with such care. A few seasons ago a Sunderland fan Bradley Lowery was treated in the most heartwarming way possible. Sadly, Bradley aged 6-years-old lost his battle to cancer in 2017. Though the days of Bradley were lived in happy moments as he was made the mascot of Sunderland and also featured in the international match of England vs Lithuania in Wembley stadium. Bradley was special guest in many of the football events throughout and was adored by every fan from all over the globe. Football clubs in England and many professional players released official statements as they paid him their final respects after the sad news of his demise broke. Bradley helped generate 1 million pounds for cancer research with all his public appearances as a mascot.
Similarly once again, Luka Modric showed how the game has influence beyond the sport itself and why it is termed as a beautiful game. We wish Selena all the best for future and we pray for her speedy recovery. Animo Selena.
