Modric: It’s great to hear the whole stadium shouting my name
Real Madrid midfielder, Luka Modric has been the engine that has driven Real Madrid to incredible success over the past several months and following Saturday evening’s 4-2 win over Villarreal, the Bernabeu stood and gave the Croatian midfielder an ovation.
“The victory is very important because we faced a very difficult opponent and we’re coming off a great physical and mental effort against Atletico Madrid. These are three very important points.
“It’s great that the Bernabeu shouted my name. I am very grateful. I’m at a good moment, as is the team. That’s what matters. I’m very proud and I thank the fans.”
Modric then discussed the upcoming second leg of their Copa del Rey semifinal at Atletico Madrid and despite having a three goal advantage, Los Blancos cannot afford to rest of their laurels.
“We can’t afford to be complacent, despite having a great game in the first leg. The tie isn’t decided and we have to play at the Vicente Calderon as if it were zero to zero. We need a goal to kill the tie.”
