Modric: Spurs are on the same level as United


Luka Modric - Tottenham news

He is quoted in The Sun as saying: “Tottenham still have a chance. We are definitely not out of the title race, even though we didn’t close the gap on United.

“In our last 14 games we’ve only had one defeat in all competitions.

“That’s excellent for us and we need to keep going.

“Anything is possible. More than anything we have demonstrated Tottenham can compete with the very best teams.

“Spurs are on the same level as United. And even though we haven’t beaten them for 10 years, we showed on Sunday that they are not better than us, we can play with them.

“The shame is we didn’t win – but even a draw is a good result as it’s not only a battle for the title but also a battle to get into the top four.

“Some teams are going to miss out. It’s a big competition to reach the Champions League next season. It’s not only four teams, it’s five or six teams fighting for this fourth place.

“I hope we can achieve that top-four spot again but we need to keep playing like we did against United and we’ll see where it takes us.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. I agree. I think the two clubs are level now and the facts that there is an 8 points difference plus a game in hand, that they have scored more goals and have conceded less as well that they are unbeaten it is only a matter of luck.

    • Would you rather that one of our most talented and influential players were to not make inspiring comments like the one you just mocked? Modric is talking the team up and praising our performance against a side that 3 seasons ago we'd have expected to beat us home and away. We have drawn once and lost once to Man U this season, beat Arsenal at the Emirates and drawn with Chelsea. Three seasons ago we were not getting these results against sides expected to finish above us. Modric is saying that we a better side now than seasons gone by and we no longer fear the the teams above us, rather we know we that on the pitch we are equal to them and can win these games. Good on him too. COYS!!!

  2. Although I agree with your approach which however is totally different of that of Modric, I think that if we want to move to a higher level we should be aware of our shortcomings in order to address them properly.

  3. Do not under estimate confidence. This is a great tactic by Modric. He's a clever guy and I'm sure he's well aware of our flaws but confidence can be the diffence between mediocre and great.
