While, Marca claim Modric said in the mixed zone afterwards:  “Many of us are not at our level. We cannot take a s*** at the beginning of every game.

“We have to be clear, it’s not a matter of luck.”

Running the rule over Madrid latest defeat, Modric said, as cited by Goal: “Missing goals and more unity on the field. At home, they’re scoring goals on us and we aren’t scoring many.

“We have to sit down, talk and to see what is our problem. It’s not normal, it’s not just one time, this has happened many times. You have to find solutions, lots of players are not performing at their best.

“I have to improve and assume more responsibility. It’s a difficult moment for the club but these things have to unite us more.

Modric did offer support to new boss Santiago Solari, who replaced Julen Lopetegui in October, he added: “The manager is doing a great job but he can’t score the goals or stop them at the beginning of the game. He has hope, but we are out there on the field and we have to do better to have more concentration.

“We can’t keep cocking up like this in every game. You have to avoid it in the future. We created but we lacked the goal and that’s our problem. Solari has our confidence and we won’t be looking for excuses with him or blame him.

“I think that we all have to be self-critical. We have to speak clearly and say it how it is. We can’t say we did well and just didn’t have luck. The ball isn’t going in and we have to see why.

“There are reasons why we are bad and you have to see what they are. We all have to take more responsibility.”
