Croatian sports weekly “Max” have an exclusive interview with Real Madrid CF star Modrić ahead of the UEFA Champions League semi-final second leg in Munich. The Croatian star is on the cover of the magazine with the quote: “We will win a 10th European title!”
Modrić is quoted as saying: “Judging by the atmosphere this is the biggest match since I came to Real Madrid. After the first match against Bayern I couldn’t sleep for long as I was really excited. The 1-0 victory was a very good result for us but we are facing a really tough match in Munich.”
Modrić is all too aware that he is again coming up against his international team-mate Mario Mandžukić, though he is not too concerned.
“We talked before and after that match in Madrid, but only about football. I am 6-0 up against him in our head-to-head matches and that’s nice score. We knew he is a real danger so we had a close eye on him in the first match and our defence did a good job.”
Finally, can Madrid go all the way? “I am really convinced that we are ready for that and that we can succeed to win the tenth European title.”
