He has played 303 matches with the Croatian midfielder across two clubs and knows him very well, and for Gareth Bale, Luka Modrić is better than some of the greatest midfielders of this century.

Watch Bale's reaction, which has become a hit on TikTok.

Gareth Bale has been retired for a year and a half. One of the best Welsh footballers in history spent nine years at Real Madrid, sharing the locker room with Croatian midfielder Luka Modrić. Before that, they played together for four seasons at Tottenham and built a very good relationship. They played together in 302 matches, with Modrić assisting Bale for 14 goals and Bale assisting Modrić for two.

A video from TikToker Futcrunch is circulating on social media, in which Bale has to choose between some of the world's best midfielders of this century and Modrić. The choices included Marcel Sabitzer, Bernardo Silva, Pedri González, Paul Scholes, Frank Lampard, Kevin De Bruyne... And the toughest choices at the end, Toni Kroos and Andrés Iniesta. No matter who was offered against Modrić, Bale chose Luka. For Kroos, he even offered an explanation.
