The Croatian midfielder Luka Modric has said that he is confident that the Real Madrid manager José Mourinho will remain at the club after the end of the season. There have been a lot of reports circulating in recent weeks that the Portuguese manager will quit the Santiago Bernabeu after the end of the season. His relationship with the President Florentino Perez has gone beyond repair due to the extremely poor run of form experienced by the team in the league. They are currently 11 points behind the arch rivals Barcelona, which has been deemed simply not good enough by the Real Madrid President.
The club are also not doing too well in the Champions League, which is a source for concern. Luka Modric was one of the signings made by José Mourinho in the summer. Even though he has not been utilised competitive with the manager so far this campaign, Modric is expected to play a key role at the club over the next few years. Mourinho only recently extended his contract with the Spanish club after managing to reclaim the league title from the clutches of Barcelona for the first time in four years. However, it looks like the club will not be able to retain the title, as they are already 11 points behind the Catalan club.
“He has a long contract and I really hope he stays here for a long time. I am progressing and adapting well now,” said Modric, who moved to the Spanish club on a £ 35 million deal from Tottenham, when asked about the future of José Mourinho and his settling process at the club. Due to the presence of players like Angel di Maria and Mesut Ozil, Modric has been unable to get a first-team spot on a regular basis. However, the 26-year-old is extremely confident about his Real Madrid future.
