Champions League: Modric’s pass for Rodrygo’s goal was illegal – Rio Ferdinand
Former Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand has hailed Luka Modric’s display as Real Madrid dumped Chelsea out of this year’s Champions League.
Modric provided a sensational pass for Rodrygo to make it 3-1 on the night and 4-4 on aggregate.
Ferdinand, who was a pundit on BT Sport, lost his voice as he described the assist as “illegal”.
He said: “This pass from Luka Modric is why I lost my voice today! That’s illegal.
“I was screaming, Luka, Muka, whatever his name was. Phenomenal.”
Mason Mount, Antonio Rudiger and Timo Werner scored to give Chelsea a three-goal lead before Rodrygo struck with 10 minutes left.
Karim Benzema then sealed Madrid’s passage into the semi-final in extra time.
