Croatia captain Luka Modric has been fined
Modric is locked in an ongoing dispute with the tax authorities and has already been told to pay
Modric was criticised for his inconsistent testimony in his home country, though he redeemed himself in the eyes of the Croatian public with his performances at the 2018 World Cup, where Croatia reached the final and Modric won the Golden Ball.
Tax fraud among footballers in La Liga is widespread, with Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Alexis Sanchez among those to have been found guilty of tax evasion during their time in Spain.
Jose Mourinho was also recently found guilty of committing tax fraud when he was manager of Real Madrid.
