A message has been uploaded by Luka Modric on social media in which he deplored the previous week as the worst in his profession.
Real Madrid were dispensed with from the Copa del Rey with a 3-0 rout at home to Barcelona last Wednesday, before losing to a similar resistance 1-0 in LaLiga Santander on Saturday, successfully finishing their title test all the while.
Their worst seven days at the Santiago Bernabeu finished in a mortifying 4-1 thrashing to Ajax in the Champions League as they left the challenge on Tuesday.
“[This has been the] most troublesome seven day stretch of my profession,” his post on Twitter started.
“Achievement isn’t in never falling, however in rising each time you fall.”
An extreme 2019 pursues on from what had been an exciting 2018 for Modric in which he won the Ballon d’Or, The Best honor, the Champions League and a silver award at the World Cup with Croatia.
