Luka Modric Ruthlessly Trolled Mohamed Salah After Winning The Champions League Final

Luka Modric told Mohamed Salah to 'try again' after Real Madrid's Champions League final victory over Liverpool.

Vinicius Jr.'s second half strike gave Real a 1-0 victory and their 14th European Cup out in Saint-Denis last month.

Prior to the game, Liverpool winger Salah claimed he wanted to face Real and 'had a score to settle' after going off injured in the 2018 final.

Salah was anonymous however and according to Los Blancos teammate Rodrygo, Modric decided to wind his opponent up at full-time.

He told the Podbah YouTube channel per Madrid Xtra: "When the Champions League final was over, Modric passed in front of Salah and said 'next time you try again'."

Savage stuff. Liverpool were favourites heading into the game, but Real's extremely difficult route to the final helped them.

Carlo Ancelotti's side knocked out Paris Saint-Germain, holders Chelsea and Manchester City in dramatic fashion.

Liverpool, meanwhile, played all 63 games available to them last season and were fatigued as the campaign drew to a close.

Rodrygo played a key role in the comebacks against Chelsea and City, scoring late on in both games to take them to extra time.

The 21-year-old is a Brazil international and will likely be part of Tite's side at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Brazil are one of the favourites and have an insane amount of depth in their squad.

There are still teams they want to avoid however and Rodrygo admitted he was 'a little afraid' of Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal.

"I see Brazil very well and among the favourites, regardless of whether we see the other teams play against them and such, I see us very well," Rodrygo told UOL Sport.

"I see France very well, I’m a little afraid of Portugal.

"A man there (Cristiano Ronaldo) can do anything, right? Help me there, Caio. No Argentina, I can’t give morals to the guys there."

Brazil are in Group G with Serbia, Switzerland and Cameroon and could face Portugal in the last 16 depending on results.
