Real Madrid fullback Carvajal hails Modric for Eibar win

Real Madrid fullback Dani Carvajal reserved special praise for Luka Modric after victory at Eibar.

Cristiano Ronaldo struck both goals for the 2-1 win, but Carvajal preferred to offer some overdue praise to Modric.

"Modric is a fundamental player for us. He brings a guarantee in the middle of the park," he said.

"I hope that he will be with us at this level for many years to come.

"Cristiano had a good game. He took the first goal very well with a good shot and then took the chance towards the end.

"The important thing for us is that we went on to win the game in the final moments."
