Modric: I have something to offer Madrid

Luka Modric has promised to win over Jose Mourinho in the second half of the season as Real Madrid attempt to chase La Liga leaders Barcelona.

The former Tottenham playmaker, pivotal at White Hart Lane, has often underwhelmed since swapping England for Spain last August.

Although the 27-year-old has started just eight league games and registered a solitary goal since completing his 37-million-euro transfer, Modric insists he has a contribution to make to the team despite being voted the worst signing of the season in Spain in a newspaper poll recently.

“I have had a few good performances, if not in every game, but I believe I can prove I have something to offer,” Modric told Croatian newspaper Sportske.

The diminutive midfielder has been kept out of the side by the likes of Xabi Alonso along with German pair Mesut Oezil and Sami Khedira.

The trio were central to Real Madrid’s title win last season, but Modric has played down notions that he has been overawed by the challenge of breaking into such an established set-up.

“It is very challenging to adapt to life at a big club like Madrid, but I’m not the kind of person to make excuses,” Modric said.

“This is Real Madrid and I understand there is great pressure for new signings to succeed here.”
