Sort your head out Luka


Luka Modric has been told by Andre Villas-Boas to sort his head out in preparation of returning to the Tottenham first team squad.

The fact is simple – Modric will not be sold unless our valuation of £40million is met by Real Madrid or any other club. The Croatian threw his toys out of his pram last month when he refused to travel with the Spurs squad for the tour of the USA and has been training in isolation ever since.

With just over a week to go before we kick-off our Premier League campaign at Newcastle it remains to be seen if AVB will include Modric in his plans for the match. One thing is for sure, no player is bigger than Tottenham Hotspur football club.

“He is training alone because we decided to do that until his mental state is ready to return to the team,” Villas-Boas said.

“It is important that, in the coming days, he understands he must return to the first team.

“We respect the player’s ambition, but he must also respect the club.”

Villas-Boas told reporters: “Until we receive a suitable offer for the player, he will not go.

“The contacts we have had with other clubs have not met with what Tottenham wants for the player.

“We respect the size of Madrid and the other interested clubs, but they must respect what we are doing too.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. After such a promising start to the transfer window I'm now totally hacked off with those in power at my beloved Spurs. It's the same every year, lots of hype but no action. We are going backwards while everyone else strengthens. Newcastle will find us easy prey next week, they have a better squad than us as it stands at the moment. It's going to be another bad start to the season.
    TOTALLY FED UP !!!!!!!!

  2. Luka go tell AVB to F*** himself . Just sit on the bench

    . Take there money.. Watch yr value drop .. Then come January

    They want u to leave.. Cause them hell…

    I watched them against Valencia .. The real test

    And they looked like mid table club..

    • If a professional footballer does that, think clubs like Real wl be interested then?

      If his value drops, Levy might as well loan him to Portsmouth or Blackpool just to prove a point.

      Luka's airhead was screwed by his agent. When a contract is extended, the club gets the upper hand.

    • Totally agree. I have no doubt DL told LM that he could leave at the end of the season. What he didn't tell LM was that he was going to set the fee so high that no one would pay it. One day DL hard ball stance will come back to bite us. This may be that time.

  3. brilliant against valentia first half hour modric will start aginst newcastle sat along with new cf lewandolski maybee-shut up you pessimists i thinkk avb will be fantastic coys

  4. Good as Defoe maybe he is not he sole answer to Spurs striker problems. I have never known spurs to be so short of goal scorers (strikers) and I have been a supprter for many years. Why have we got 17 midfielders and 10 defenders in the squad -is Villas Boas going to swamp the defence and hope the opposition doesn't score? Sadly think we are in for a very mediocre season. As for Modric – take the 30 m. and buy a decent striker.
