She might not be much smaller than Luka.

@Rob He is listed 66 kg too (Real Madrid listing) and 171 cm. Then he could get 5'6.5 barefoot. His proportions give off a 5'6 presence or shorter
Editor Rob
I don't know how he got a 171 listing, seems hard to imagine he's almost same height as Jenny.

@Droopy 173cm- Modric is generally a weak 5'7" player. 10 years ago this guy looked 5'6" flat on the pitch. 171 is just out of the question, he failed to look that tall next to F. Perez (Real Madrid President).
recapa said on 8/Dec/21
@Droppy ,except that they arent but a 170 figure is definitely a much better guess than 171 as he can look it sometimes.
HRA1022 said on 7/Dec/21
Is Rodrygo 5ft7 Rob?

Editor Rob
at most 5ft 7
Droopy 173cm said on 6/Dec/21
@recepa In most of the pics hazard and modric looks the same height but if you compare him with messi he seems 1-1.5 cm taller so I would change my argue to 170 cm. I think it is pretty much argueable for modric.
recapa said on 5/Dec/21
@Droppy, no he isnt and he is literally at best 1cm taller than leo and they can look the same alot of times and leo is a 168.5-169 guy and also check the pic that i posted of luka nextot to weak 171 eden and he is 1-2cm shorter so he isnt 171 or anywhere near it nor he does look it propotionally.
Droopy 173cm said on 1/Dec/21
I think he is 1-2 cm taller than messi. So I would say 171 cm range is possible but he can't measure 172 cm even with bust a gut waking up height maybe 171.5 and they might have rounded of to 172 cm. But I would give him 171 cm.
recapa said on 23/Sep/21
lol,no .hazard is a strong 5ft7 he has 1-2cm on modric.Click Here.
SK8 said on 22/Sep/21
for me he is 169 cm, Messi is 168 cm, Neymar is 172 cm, Hazard is 169 cm
recapa said on 20/Sep/21
this listing is perfect modric seems always to edge messi by a 1cm :169.5 for modric and 168.5 for leo.
Bagheera said on 18/Sep/21

Tato said on 23/Jul/21

Hey Rob all the pictures I seen with him and Messi he always seems shorter about 0.5 an inch I see Messi as 5'6.5 guy do u think it's just camera angles
Cjcjcj said on 5/Jan/21
@heightvsinces Carvajal is clearly 1 73,
heightvsinches said on 12/Jul/20
@Ronaldo.185.5 i saw alot of pics from him and he is always the shortiest man in Real Madrid, and people like Carvajal or L.Vazquez is 1,70-71 no more.
Ronaldo 185.5cm said on 14/Jun/20
@CMVsinches do you think he is shorter only because of one photo? That doesnt tell anything about his height he is definitely like 170cm
FrankG1 said on 21/May/20
You’re right Rob! He deserves a downgrade
CMvsinches said on 20/May/20
This needs to be updated Rob, he is cleary shorter Look at this: Click Here
Editor Rob
Both Modric and Messi can look under 5ft 7 with someone like Julia Roberts, who isn't wearing heels that day, just normal footwear.
Hw19 said on 27/Apr/20
Rob, how tall does he look next to Kante?

Editor Rob
they can appear quite close
ZachCpa said on 5/Apr/20
He probably just shrinks during the day from 67.75 inches to 67 inches
TheHawk said on 8/Jan/20
5’6 1/2 no more
Valois said on 31/May/19
Kroos must be around 5'10-5'11 then.
khaled taban said on 15/Aug/18
Rob , It's time to add Marcelo Vieira don't you think
Nik said on 15/Jul/18
@ Sandy Cowell - That is true! Footballers are quite a bit taller on average than people in the general population, therefore a player of 5'7" may look small compared to his team mates but he would look ordinary walking around most streets up and down the country!

It's good to see that you have commented on Michael Owen's page, he is a great example of how being on the shorter side can be an asset in certain positions, Luka Modric is another good example! However, like you said, being tall is advantageous if you are a goalkeeper or a defender!

Many thanks for your Birthday wishes, Sandy!

Sandy Cowell said on 14/Jul/18
@ Nik - I have to admit myself that I thought he looked particularly small in his team, but footballers do tend to be taller on average, though there are many exceptions. Look at Michael Owen, an outstanding footballer and goal scorer. What happy memories he brings back! (I have just returned from his page.)

All in all, it is tactical ability that makes a good footballer. However, some positions call for a tall lad; a smaller goal keeper would be at a serious disadvantage as he wouldn't be able to jump very high to knock the balls out!

Have a great Birthday Weekend, Nik!

🎂🎁👍 AND we have a match today against Belgium - hooray for that!⚽️
Nik said on 12/Jul/18
@ Sandy Cowell

I have seen claims of 5'5" for Luka Modric but you, Rob, and 31 voters, are more likely to be on the money!

I did notice a few Croatian players who are modest in height, how tall those players are compared to Luka is something I am not sure of!

Luka Modric can have 5'7"!
Sandy Cowell said on 12/Jul/18
I notice that Willy said (18th June) that Luka Modric is 'pretty short for a Croatian'. I didn't notice any smaller players in yesterday's line-up, so Willy isn't wrong there! I just thought Luka might be a little short for a footballer!

Mr Modric gets 5ft7.
heightaddict said on 2/Jul/18
Id feel hed be a little over 5'7, Messi is closer to 5'7 than 5'6 if he was they wouldnt be as much difference between messi and maradona when their clearly is and modric is nearly an inch taller than messi so maybe 5'7.5 on a good day
gogigagagagigo said on 1/Jul/18
Looked similar, if not a little shorter than Messi in recent match. So I'd say 5'6"
mande2013 said on 24/Jun/18
5'6.25 for Messi and 5'6.75 for Modric?
khaled taban said on 24/Jun/18
Weak 5'7" is the best guess
Ante Frani? said on 21/Jun/18
taller than messi in croatia vs argentina match about 2cm
Chico said on 21/Jun/18
Think he needs a downgrade to 168 cm. Saw him standing besides Messi at the kickoff Croatia vs Argentinia and he totally looked the same height as him, who is listed as 168 cm on this page. Maybe 170ish in the morning but drawing near the 168 cm line in my opinion.
Editor Rob
Messi is 169, both could be the same range. Although this would confirm that Real Madrid lie about height measurements as they claimed he measured 172cm.
Willy said on 18/Jun/18
Pretty short for a croatian.
Khaled Taban said on 14/May/18
I guess 171.5cm
YESS said on 20/Apr/18
Is 169.5 possible Rob?
Editor Rob
Modric can look a weak 5ft 7...I wouldn't dismiss that figure of 169.5 entirely. I think 10 years ago I viewed the guy as 5ft 6 because of his overall physique and head shape, but I still feel near 5ft 7 is a greater possibility.
Adnaj said on 20/Apr/18
The 175cm listing on google was silly. After taking a close look at him with Marcelo/Carvajal who are 172-173 guys I thought he'd be around Rob's listing. He could possibly stand 169cm because he looks very weak, as in built. Maybe a tad taller than Messi. In Croatia he would be very short I believe, if the average is around 181cm there(not taking the Dinaric Alps where the average is about 185cm).
Tom Paul said on 20/Apr/18
172cm at morning.
Floky said on 19/Apr/18
He looks 168/169 to me
Hunter said on 19/Apr/18
Morning: 171,5
Afternoon: maybe 170.8 (5ft 7.25)
Gonzalo said on 19/Apr/18
I´ve seen him listed at 1,73 or 74. Probably doesn´t look that tall next to Ronaldo for instance
Zampo said on 18/Apr/18
Surprised with this a little. Thought he was 5'6 1/2 maybe 5'6 3/4 but didn't see the full 5'7, maybe because I view him at an extreme low when on the football pitch.
HonestSlovene said on 18/Apr/18
Spot on.
Editor Rob
proportionally I think Modric can look under 5ft 7...but at times actually does seem like he will measure it. I struggle to see him as tall as Real's claims.
