Levy gets support from Spurs skipper in Modric saga


Tottenham captain Michael Dawson has backed Daniel Levy’s decision not to sell Luka Modric.

Spurs have most recently snubbed a £27million bid from Chelsea for the want-away midfielder and Daws wants him to stay at the Lane.

“This time of year there are always going to be rumours and Luka’s been linked with Chelsea,” Dawson told Sky Sports News.

“From a team’s point of view you want to keep your best players and the chairman has come out and said he is going to keep him so that is great for the football club.

“We are all friends with Luka, we have got great team spirit amongst the players and we want to keep that together.

“The chairman has come out and said no one is for sale so that’s great.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


    • I agree”south upper”Dawson is the man.I jus hope we can sign a CB as good as he is to make a solid partnership for nxt season???as long as we do that and keep hold of our key player’s and sign a world class striker(or 2)I really think with what we done last season with only scoreing the same amount of goals as relegated Blackpool,then this season with proper strike power(not Crouch,Pav and a out of form Defoe)we could not only be looking at top 4 but must have a genuine chance at going for the title???but that’s a lot of ifs and buts!!!

  1. Levy is holding out for a January sale where modric will be one of the best players in world football that will not be cup tied for CL. £35mil at least.

  2. I personaly wud sell modric if it didn’t mean that other key players wud want to follow and no decent players wud want to join cus they wud jus see us as a selling club,so I think levy has been put in a position where even if we got offered 40m he wud av to turn it down jus to look at the bigger picture!the funny thing is modric dosnt score nuff goals to be the alround middle man that the price tag suggests!!!but at the end of the day he don’t need to if we sign 2 DECENT forwards to put the ball in the back of the net and not rely on Bale and VDVaart and the occasional screamer from Hudds!!!

  3. Ferguson sold Ronaldo to Madrid for 70mil and Liverpool sold Torres to Chelski for 50mil but you wouldn't call either of those clubs a 'selling club' would you? If a player isn't happy and thinks the grass is greener then as a businessman you flog them and say thx very much and buy someone else for half the price but just as commited.
    And as for those players at the start of my rant, they didn't make much of a start to either of their respective clubs.

    I rest my case, your witness

  4. WUD ? What fuckin word is WUD.And fuckin CUS? AND FUCKIN JUS?
    Did you go to Mrs Hardcastle's school for dunces Dav? I'm have enuff od dis so me is goin to mek san eggie rol.

  5. sell modric we dont need him..vdv can play as attacking midfielder and playmaker………then we can play 2 up front….we have to buy one striker who can hold the ball and score by himself also….somebody like drogba,,,
