Modric finally shows Real Madrid his value

Posted on March 07, 2013 by admin

There have been a lot of fans and followers of Real Madrid scratching their heads this season, wondering why on Earth did Jose Mourinho chase the Croatian midfielder for so long, eventually paying Tottenham around €40 million for him last summer. His 40 minute masterclass against Manchester United on Tuesday has answered those questions, although Modric must start producing the goods more regularly for the fans to accept him.

As soon as United were reduced to 10 men, Mourinho brought on the 27-year old and it worked perfectly. The little maestro orchestrated the game for Madrid and exploited the extra space perfectly. His equalising goal was simply stunning and he helped to create Ronaldo’s winner, so it was a fantastic night for him.

Modric has struggled to settle into the team, but that game should give him the confidence he needs to keep producing what he used to do in the Premier League for years. He may not be ideal for every game Madrid play, but his ability to unlock stubborn defences and create space and chances against teams that defend resolutely could make him a very important player in La Liga at the Bernabeu.
