Luka Modric admits that Wednesday night’s game against Manchester City is the biggest of his club career.
The Croatian midfielder will line up for Harry Redknapp’s side at Eastlands with a place in next season’s Champions League up for grabs.
“It’s a big game, probably the biggest club game I’ve played because the Champions League is at stake,” Modric told the club’s official site.
“We managed an important win against Bolton, City had a great win against Villa and this is probably the game of the season.
“In fact not probably, it’s definitely the game of the season for both us and them.”
“We’ve played City three times since I’ve been here and won all three matches, including 3-0 here earlier in the season,” he added.
“It is such a big game and I’m sure it will be a joy to play in it. We have a great team with so many quality players and I’m sure we can go there and do well again.”
