Luka Modric v Juventus

Real Madrid’s Luka Modric claims Liverpool deserve to be in UCL final

Clash of giants

Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric has explained that Liverpool deserve to be in the Champions League final as Los Blancos look for a third consecutive win.

Zinedine Zidane’s side are yet to lose a knockout game in the Champions League since he took over the club and will be looking to keep that record intact.

Though, it is not going to be easy with Liverpool well and truly up for adding another European cup to their infamous collection

The side are shock finalists this season having overcome every test in front of them in this year’s competition.

While it is a shock that they are in the final, it definitely should not mean that they don’t deserve to be there.

That is one point that Luka Modric wanted to make known when talking to MARCA this week. 

“They weren’t one of the favourites, but when you look at the matches they’ve played you see that they deserve to be in the final,” he explained.

“They’re a good team, they have a great coach and a very difficult match awaits us.

“But we will be prepared.”

Kings of Europe

Sergio Ramos has also been speaking to the press this week and he is looking for more Champions League glory.

“To have a new opportunity to show once again that we are kings of Europe is very positive,” he said at an event organised by Movistar, as also cited by MARCA. 

“We can enjoy another final and try to repay this happiness.

“To claim it for a third year in a row would be a dream.

“I hope we can bring home a third consecutive Champions League.”
