Luka Modric told the Croatian media he was confident that he could prove to Real Madrid that they were not mistaken in signing him last summer. The Croatia international told 'Sportske' that he had performed well and acknowledged the pressure at the club, without wanting to use it as an excuse.
"This is Real Madrid. I know how much pressure the media puts on new signings," Modric said. "I'm not looking for excuses, because that's not the way I am, but adapting to a big club like Real Madrid is very demanding," he added.
Asked about his performances during the first few months at the club, he insisted that: "I've performed well on quite a few occasions. Not in every game, but in general I feel I've shown that I can offer something," he concluded.
