Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric has described his broken leg as if his world has ‘crumbled’.

Modric fractured his right fibula in a challenge with Lee Bowyer during the 2-1 wiin against Birmingham City on Saturday and expects to be out of action for at least six weeks.

“It’s like my whole world has crumbled because I will be out for at least six weeks,” Modric told Croatian daily Jutarnji List.

“I am terribly sad.

“It wasn’t a ferocious tackle, but it hurt awfully and I knew something was wrong the moment it happened.

“The worst feeling is knowing that I will be watching both my club and country from the sidelines for a while.”
