Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric has confessed that his stamp on Denis Suarez, for which he was red-carded in a LaLiga clash against Celta Vigo, was “an accidental action”.
Los Blancos got off to a winning start with a 3-1 spanking of Celta Vigo at Balaidos on Saturday despite Modric being sent off.
The Ballon d’Or winner was sent off early in the second half after a VAR review.
But after the match, the Croatia international tweeted that he was “sent off for an accidental action.
“In life, I would never intentionally make such an action on a player. Totally involuntary!”
