Tottenham manager unhappy with Luka Modric
We’ve been here before. Luka Modric wanted to leave White Hart Lane twelve months ago before the combined persuasion of Harry Redknapp and Daniel Levy ensured the Croatian played a big part in Tottenham finishing fourth.

However, it appears as though the Croatian playmaker has played his last game in a Spurs shirt, especially as Modric has failed to join his Tottenham team-mates for a pre-season tour of America, with new manager Andre Villas-Boas pretty damning of a player seemingly destined for Real Madrid.
Speaking to AS, he is reported as saying: “I think Modric is wrong. This will go against him. He has worsened the situation with what he’s doing and now the chairman (Daniel Levy) is very angry.
“This is also not a good time for Daniel Levy, who is in the USA at the moment, because his wife is ill.
“He’s good, very good. I tried to sign him last summer for Chelsea. He will be a big loss. He’s a player who can make the difference, who gives a lot of clarity to the play when the team needs it.”
Villas-Boas was seemingly happy enough to try and poach Modric a year ago, although he’s not enjoying the feeling of the shoe being on the other foot as Tottenham now look to generate as much money as possible from the sale of a world-class player.
