He Is Overrated – Modric Discloses Chelsea Player Who Caused Real Madrid Come Back

Chelsea are out of the UEFA Champions League and courtesy to one of the most loved Chelsea players according to Modric

Modric was sensational once again as he produced an assisting long pass to Rodrygo who helped restore Real Madrid hopes.

The Croatian’s assist helped Real Madrid come back from a slump at Santiago Bernabeu where they were already losing 3-0 to Chelsea.

The Blues indeed put up a very good fight but wasn’t strong enough to leap past Real Madrid.

Chelsea saw the only two shots on target from Real Madrid going freely into their goalpost with Edouard Mendy failing to make any single save while Courtois helped keep Real Madrid in the game with two pretty saves during the finishing time.

According to Luka Modric who was in the press after the game, Edouard Mendy may not be as good as he is highly rated to be.

“It’s a very good game for us, I think mister [Ancelotti] did great changes and [the subs] did well, they had a great impact on the game.

“Certainly in this competition experience plays an important role and I think today it helped us a bit.

“But Chelsea, we knew it even after the first game, that we would have a tough game.

“Because they are, for me, the most difficult team to play against. I watch them a lot because of my friend Mateo [Kovacic], how they play, and they are a very tough, physical team, very compact.

“We knew that it was going to be tough – just like it was. But in the end we showed again great character, great desire, great togetherness and we managed to turn it around, which is amazing. A defeat that is very sweet!”

He added: “Unbelievable to describe this game. We were dead until the goal we scored. Chelsea scored three goals, maybe the first a bit lucky from a deflection. I can’t say we played badly.

“They used their chances well and scored the goals. We didn’t give up. We kept believing, fighting and in the end showed huge character until we saw a loophole with the Keeper who couldn’t save the shots.

“This stadium and the fans were very helpful when we were losing 3-0. They kept supporting us and it gave us a boost to keep believing.”
