Rodrygo reveals how Modric trolled Mohamed Salah immediately after the UCL final


For many Liverpool players, especially Mohamed Salah, the recent UEFA Champions League final against Real Madrid was a shot at revenge.

These two European giants faced off in the ultimate stage back in 2018, which the Reds lost 3-1, as their Egyptian superstar was forced off the pitch injured after an infamous tussle with then Los Blancos captain Sergio Ramos.

After the Spanish giants beat Manchester City and were confirmed as Liverpool's opponents for this year's final, Salah even went as far as tweeting out "we have a score to settle" immediately after Los Merengues' comeback victory over the Cityzens.

This did not sit well inside the Real Madrid dressing room, and as we all know, Ancelotti's men denied Salah and Co. the opportunity for revenge, beating them 1-0 in Paris to clinch a record-extending 14th UEFA Champions League title.

And according to Santiago Bernabeu attacker Rodrygo, Luka Modric made sure to add insult to injury by trolling Salah shortly after their unforgettable win over Klopp's crew.

The Brazilian, who was at the heart of Real Madrid's unforgettable comeback against Manchester City in the semifinals, sat down with the Cortes Podcast and revealed a few interesting details from the showdown with Liverpool. The attacker stated that after the final whistle, Modric made sure to take a jibe at the Premier League Golden Boot winner during the guard of honor for the runners-up.

"I have to tell a funny anecdote," Rodrygo said, as per Marca. "When the Champions League final was over, we made a guard of honour for the Liverpool players.

"Salah passed by, dejected, and Modric, who was on the other side, greeted him and said: 'you can try again next time'."

Not only can Modric cause damage to opponents on the pitch with his abilities, but the Croatian icon knows how to stick it where it hurts with his words as well!
