The Blancos have secured a Liga and Champions League double this season, but there is no chance of Zinedine Zidane's squad resting on their laurels

Luka Modric believes there are “many more titles” to come for Real Madrid on the back of their Liga and Champions League double.

The Blancos have been the dominant force in European football over recent years, claiming three continental crowns in four seasons – including history-making back-to-back successes in 2016 and 2017.

They have also been able to restore domestic dominance by breaking Barcelona’s stranglehold in the Primera Division.

Many members of their squad, including talismanic duo Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos, are now in their 30s, but Modric feels there is still plenty left in the tank for Zinedine Zidane’s side.

The Croatian midfielder told reporters after helping to secure a 4-1 victory over Juventus in Cardiff on Saturday: “We need to keep doing what we are doing, enjoy what we are doing and we will see.

"We are in good ages, we have young players that are coming that have a lot of quality, and this is only positive thing for the team.

“It’s something special we are doing at the moment and we need to keep going because this moment will not last forever.

"I think we feel we are an amazing team, and we need to just keep doing what we are doing, because I think we can win many more titles in the future.”

Modric has also revealed that Zidane’s tactical instructions during the half-time interval at the Millennium Stadium helped to inspire a three-goal showing from Madrid in the second 45 minutes.

He added after seeing Ronaldo, Casemiro and Marco Asensio find the target: “I think definitely we had instruction from mister [Zidane], and what he said that we need to be more aggressive, to not allow Juve to keep the ball easily like they did in first half after our goal.

“We dropped back too much and it was not good for us and second half he changed this, and it was crucial for our performance the second half.

“If he can see something that we can do on the pitch, he tells us, and we are trying to do in our best way.”
