Modric: Madrid always come back stronger

Luka Modric has moved to reassure Real Madrid fans the side’s poor run of form is only temporary as they ‘always come back stronger’.

Wednesday’s 3-1 defeat at Wembley to Tottenham Hotspur was the side’s second consecutive defeat to spark concern over the side’s recent form.

“We are Real Madrid and we always come back stronger,” Modric told BeIn Sports after the game.

“We have found ourselves in poor situations before and we can recover, so this is what we now work towards.

“The result was one we did not anticipate and it’s tough for us to take but in football these things happen and Spurs deserved the result – they were superior to us.

“It’s not a problem with our physicality but we are not playing with form or as we know we can, simply we were just not good enough and we must look for solutions.”
