Luka Modric, Real Madrid’s midfielder, has voiced his opinion that Liverpool’s spot in the final of the Champions League is well earned and issued a warning for his teammates.

The Reds are on their way to win their first Champions League since back in 2005 – it is to be decided on May 26 in Kiev.

Their opponents, Real Madrid, are most certainly the favourites to win the clash as they won the tournament three times out of the last four. However, former Spur Modric thinks they are a force to be reckoned with and they did not get where they are by chance.

“They weren’t one of the favourites, but when you look at the matches they’ve played you see that Liverpool deserve to be in the final,” Modric said, according to the SportsMole. “They’re a good team, they have a great coach and a very difficult match awaits us. But we will be prepared.”
