Tottenham fully deserved to beat Real Madrid – Luka Modric
Luka Modric insists Real Madrid deserved to be beaten by Tottenham in their Champions League clash at Wembley.
Zinedine Zidane’s side slumped to a defeat on Wednesday evening as Spurs ran out comfortable 3-1 winners over the Champions League holders.
Two goals from Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen’s strike had given Mauricio Pochettino’s side a 3-0 lead before Cristiano Ronaldo salvaged a late consolation with 10 minutes remaining.
After the match, Ronaldo bemoaned Tottenham’s opening goal, which was scored from an offside position, and claimed the result was ‘not a fair reflection of what happened’.
But Modric disagrees with his Madrid teammate.
Of course we are disappointed with our performance and the result tonight,’ Modric told beIN Sports.
‘I think Tottenham were a much better team, it’s as simple as that, they deserved to win.
We need to see what we need to do to get back to where we were before to play like we can.
‘I can agree with you that we were a bit more open than usual, and Tottenham knew how to use all this space that we left them and they scored three goals.
‘Like I said, they deserved to win.’
