Is this true? Scholes retired in 2013 which is the season Kroos really started to kick on aged 23. Scholes had a partner in Carrick who was doing the same role as Kroos to a higher level up until that point.Modric is better than Scholes ever was and Scholes actually said he modelled his game on Kroos at the end of his career, he was that big of a fan. Two all-time great midfielders.
Kroos is currently better than Modric but Modric reached a higher level overall. Kroos from 2013 until about 2016 was different class, but had a few slower years before bouncing back recently.
