Santiago Solari's men have lost three of their last four matches in all competitions, and Modric was asked whether the absence of Ronaldo, who joined Juventus before the season began, was taking its toll on his team-mates. Their only chance of glory lies in retaining the Champions League title.
"The absence of Cristiano is something every team would feel; to find a replacement for Cristiano is nearly impossible", Ballon d'Or victor Modric, 33, told reporters on Monday.
Recently, the 2018 Ballon d'Or victor, and Croatian playmaker Luka Modric accepted that the club misses Ronaldo, stating that searching a replacement for the 5 time Ballon d'Or victor is almost impossible.Читайте также: Tokyo court grants ex-Nissan chief Ghosn bail
"What the club tried to do after Ronaldo left was to have other players take over his role in the attack, sharing the responsibility". To give you an idea, Real Madrid have scored 43 goals in league this season. He insisted that the inconsistent form of Real Madrid's front-three has been the "biggest problem this season". I will not name names but we need 20 goals from two or three players. The club have put their faith in other players like Gareth [Bale], [Marco] Asensio, Karim [Benzema], plus we've brought in Mariano and Vinicius, who's doing very well for his age.
"The absence of Cristiano is something every team would feel; to find a replacement for Cristiano is nearly impossible", he told reporters ahead of Madrid's Champions League last-16 second leg against Ajax. "But sometimes things don't go as expected".
The 33-year-old has continued to make headlines since joining the Italian champions, as he leads the goalscoring charts in the Serie A with 19 goals and has contributed with 10 assists as well in 26 appearances.
The 2018 Ballon d'Or victor also backed Bale - whose agent launched a stinging attack on fans who booed the Wales worldwide during Saturday's Clasico defeat - to return to his best after a torrid period in which his future has been the subject of media speculation. "We are going to apply a lot of pressure on them".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
