Luka Modric ignites the controversy at Real Madrid, will they take action?

Emilio Butragueño, director of Institutional Relations of Real Madridspoke after the victory of the Merengue club against Celta de Vigo on the last match day, and referred to one of the most controversial plays of the game. Melero López sanctioned a supposed foul by Luka Modric and being charged by the rival team almost caused the 2-2 at that moment of the match, which would have changed the situation of the teams.

To the complaints on social networks, the statements of Real Madridwere added, since through its communication channel it analyzed with a magnifying glass this and other plays where the team has been harmed by arbitration decisions. In addition, in said television space, Real Madrid recalled that since October 2020 a penalty has not been sanctioned in favor of the white club.

"What Luka has done, has been to give a pass. He has missed us a lot. In the box we looked at each other and said "but good!" Also yellow card. It was very strange. Knowing what he is like, his reaction gives you the idea of what happened. He is very surprised", said Butragueño. The leader evoked the personality of the Croatian and assured that if he reacted like this it was because an injustice had really happened.

Beyond the controversy, he also referred to the importance of this victory for Real Madrid: “It is true that the first 30 minutes have been excellent. But also in the second half we had control of the game. We could have closed the scoring earlier. I've seen everyone fight for 90 minutes. The rival also plays but in general all have played a great game", assured.

Finally, he highlighted the work of Karim Benzemá, something that Zidane also did

The former player referred to the two forwards of the team, on the one hand praising Karim Benzema's work: "Today he has once again been a decisive player. Control of the first goal is a beauty and in another he chooses what the play requires. He is a very complete player", concluded.
