Harry Redknapp has revealed that Luka Modric missed Tottenham’s 3-2 win against Brighton due to illness.
Modric’s absence had Spurs fans questioning why he was not involved but Redknapp claims that the Croatian is unwell.
Redknapp said: “Luka wasn’t feeling well. He came in yesterday and wasn’t great, he came in this morning to see the doctor and he had ulcers on the back of his throat.
“He was pretty rough. The doctor rung and said no way he can play.
“Again, I can’t fault his attitude, he’s been first class. Obviously it’s been a difficult period for everybody with him. He’s trained well and worked hard. He’s a great lad and you couldn’t meet a better pro in my opinion.”
