Ronaldo left the team because of a disappointing season for Real Madrid
Luka Modric has drawn comparisons between the loss of Real Madrid Cristiano Ronaldo and the potential departure of Lionel Messi from the Blaugrana. Ronaldo’s move to Juventus in 2018 was followed by a disappointing season for Real Madrid despite winning the European Super Cup. Still, Los Blancos were able to recover in the 2019/20 season, winning Supercopa de Espana and LaLiga. “It would be a big loss, like when Ronaldo left,” Luka told reporters. “But you can’t think about the past. It is football, and that’s it. If this happens, it will be a massive loss to the prestige of the league. But we need to go forward. Other players will become stars. When Cristiano left, the same thing happened; Real Madrid’s life went on without the Portuguese, and it will be the same for Barca and LaLiga without Leo Messi.
Modric expects Real Madrid to win even more silverware in the 2020/21 campaign. “We do not have a young team, but we have an experienced team. I don’t know if we will buy players, but we have enough quality even if this remains the case. “We showed it in LaLiga, and we know we can do it again. After the suspension due to the coronavirus pandemic, we returned so motivated. We missed football, and we missed the winning games. We worked so hard; I think we were physically the best team in the league, and therefore we won it. It was my second LaLiga title, and I want to win more.”
