Al Jazira - Real Madrid

Modric named Man of the Match in semi-final clash

NEWS | 13/12/2017

"We created a lot of chances but we couldn't finish them off and that's why we really struggled", said the midfielder.
Luka Modric claimed the Man of the Match award in this evening's game against Al Jazira. The Whites' midfielder, who completed the full 90 minutes, pulled the strings in the middle of the pitch and laid on Cristiano Ronaldo's equaliser. Modric also took the Man of the Match award in last season's Club World Cup semi-final encounter against América.

At the final whistle, the Croatian spoke to the media to offer his thoughts on the game: "We were really made to suffer. Coming into the game, we knew it was going to be tough, but I think that the problem was that we didn't put our chances away. We created a lot of openings, but failed to finish them off and that's why we really struggled".

"It's important that Cristiano was on the scoresheet and Bale too, after a long time without scoring. I'm sure that it means a lot to him and that it'll boost his confidence. I hope that he keeps this form up and that he returns to full fitness, because he's got a big role to play this season".

"Last time people took exception to what I said…I don’t like it because I don’t know in which situations they’re going to employ it. In some cases it might help the game, but sometimes it takes too long and it causes real confusion. I don’t want to discuss it any more, what has to happen, will happen, and we have to get used to it".
