I’ve had a fair bit of stick with regard my views on Luka Modric – I really don’t see why?
I’ve never suggested that he isn’t a fantastic footballer or questioned his obvious desire to better himself and career.
Not once have said that losing him would be beneficial to the club, or that I’m NOT grateful for his efforts in a Tottenham shirt – even last year when his heart obviously wasn’t in it. ‘Ah yes, his dream move to Chelsea’…I forget – who was their manager last summer!?
Funnily enough I think he won over a few doubters last year, certainly in the early months of the season, when even after a summer of speculation – he put in some of the best performances of any Spurs player in recent years – he obviously learnt naff all from that experience.
Refusing to attend training and subsequently boarding a flight to the clubs pre season tour of America is a disgrace – No excuses, a disgrace.
Footballers in general are rewarded handsomely for the efforts and Luka Modric is no different.
Out of respect to his employers and maybe more so, the adoring fans that that chant his name week in week out, until a transfer is agreed, he is a Spurs player and should behave like one.
Seriously! What are the Spurs hierarchy to do – sell ‘one’ of their prized assets for peanuts, just because the player fancies a change of scenery?
He will however be granted his wish to leave, but only when an acceptable offer is received (believed to be £35 – £40 million.)
That really is the end of it, if anyone wants him enough, pay up or he stays.
You were more then happy to sign your contract Luka – it’s technically known as TOUGH S**T!
From Modric’s point of view, I doubt very much if the club in question makes much of a difference to him. Chelsea, Real or United it makes no odds – as long as he becomes an elite earner.
My original article a few weeks back was a simple question – World class Modric? I can confidently answer that right now.
Not a chance, not even close, you’re classless Mr. Modric and until you overcome that – you will be remembered by that sour fact.
Even if you could play a bit.
