Real Madrid miss Cristiano Ronaldo, says Luka Modric. The Croat spoke about how the team have missed the influence of the Portuguese on the pitch.
Cristiano Ronaldo always motivated Real Madrid to win and Los Blancos miss his goals and character, says Luka Modric.
Portugal great Ronaldo became Madrid’s all-time leading goalscorer during nine prolific and trophy-laden seasons at the Santiago Bernabeu between 2009 and 2018.
Modric, who briefly interrupted the Ronaldo-Lionel Messi monopoly of the Ballon d’Or by winning the prestigious individual prize in 2018, concedes the absence of Ronaldo’s qualities have been felt.
“Talking about the player seems trivial to me – he is among the best ever,” Modric told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“We missed his goals and character at Real. Cristiano always wants to win, he motivated us and made us react.
“As a person then he is 10. He has a big heart and is always ready to help those in need.”
