Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric has expressed his desire to win one more Champions League.
“The important thing was to get through as we have not done it in two years,” Modric told Movistar.
“We have to go step by step and see where we can go, but we have shown that there is still a lot of hunger in this team and that they want to keep winning.
“I hope we can go far but it was a very important first step. It was a very demanding game, Atalanta is a very physical team, they push one by one across the pitch, they don’t stop.
“I think we have done well from the beginning and very happy to be in the quarter-finals.”
He said: “I always say that you don’t have to look at the years, what the player does on the field is important, it doesn’t matter how old, or how old his passport is.
“My physique and with everything I have achieved here, I am still hungry to continue doing things well, I am working to achieve all this and I feel very good.”
“In the end, when you have been taking care of yourself for so many years, when you sow you end up harvesting.
“We always try to give the highest level; people must value the performance. The objective was to get through with a good result.”
