UCL: Luka Modric Cautions Liverpool Ahead of Anfield Battle


Real Madrid midfielder, Luka Modrić has issued warning to Liverpool ahead of the Champions League quarter-final second leg tie on Wednesday.

Modric addressed the press at the Anfield press room on the eve of the second-leg encounter against Jurgen Klopp’s side.

The Croatian warned that despite their two goals advantage going into the game, Los Blancos were in England to deliver a performance befitting of the competition and will have to put in a top display.

“I expect it to be a very demanding game, in which we’ll have to deliver a performance befitting of the competition and we’ll have to put in a top display,” Modric told the press.

“We’ll have to try and do what we did in the first leg and attack and defend as a unit, go out to get the win and not defend our lead. We’ve got to go for the win”.

“We’re in good shape. There are so many games and they really take their toll, particularly at this important stage of the season, in which we’ve got a lot of important players out. But we’re in good shape, we’ve got to keep going.

“We’ve worked hard for nine months to be in this position and to be in the hunt in the league and the Champions League and we can’t go pointing to fatigue.

“It’s not easy but we’ve got to hang in there and keep working hard, recover properly and be good professionals, just as we have been up until now. I hope that our efforts will help us to win something”.
