Luka Modrić on Champions League final: “There is no favourite but we have a lot of confidence.”

Real Madrid are confident going into the Champions League final against Liverpool on Saturday, according to Luka Modrić.

“We have certain experience in this competition. Some of the players have played in four Champions League finals. Now we are lucky to be in the fifth one. We need to try to be normal like all season,” Modrić told BT Sport.

“There is no favourite in the final. Liverpool are a great team, they are having a great season, they won two cups, they fought for the league until the end… There is no favourite but we have a lot of confidence.”

“What we like about him is his personality, his humility, how he speaks with the players, how he approaches us,” Modrić added.

“When you have a person like him around you, you give more on the pitch. You give more for him. That’s why Carlo is a special coach, one of the best in the world of football still.

“The human side of him is the best, it’s what we like the most and is the best for this team.”
