We’ll keep putting pressure on the top two – Luka Modric


Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric says the players know what they need to do to keep putting pressure on the top two in La Liga – win their final four games.

The Croatian scored in the 3-0 win over Villarreal last night, a vital three points as Los Blancos kept up with Barcelona and Atletico de Madrid. Zinedine Zidane’s men had been under huge pressure to respond after their title rivals both won earlier in the evening.

Speaking to reporters after the final whistle, Modric said he was delighted with the performance on the night. He added that the players know they need to focus on their own games for the rest of the season and hope both of their rivals slip up along the way.

“We played fantastically from the start, we got three good goals and we have to continue putting pressure on the other teams. We have to do our thing and see if anyone above us slips up. We must focus n what we have to do, we’re playing well,” he stated.

He added: “We are Real Madrid and we’ve got a squad that can fight for titles. The eleven plus the bench do their thing and it’s important that during the season everyone is ready. The game in Vallecas will be difficult and after that we will think about the Champions League. We’re full of confidence, we’re playing well and we’re going to keep going until the end of the season.”
