This Saturday, the cracker between Real Madrid and Barcelona will be on the programme and Luka Modric acknowledges that his team should not lose from the arch rival, because then title youth, with a gap of fourteen points, seems unfeasible. The Croatian midfielder says his team is eager to achieve a good result against the Catalans.
“We are ready for the battle. We need to be extra careful and not allow Barcelona space, because then they will have players who can punish that,”says Modric talking to Codere. The routiner, who received thirty million euros from Tottenham Hotspur in 2012, hopes for a lot of support from the public at the Santiago Bernabéu:”They will ensure that there is a great atmosphere”.
“We will give everything, just like the fans will do it,”says 32-year-old Modric, who hopes he will be playing football at Real for many years to come:”Drawing at Real Madrid was a dream that became reality. There are not many players who have been able to ensure that they have retired here. My wish is to retire here, but things can change quickly in football.
