Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas has criticised midfielder Luka Modric as rumours of a departure from the club intensify.
The Croatian midfielder has apparently failed to travel for Tottenham’s pre-season trip to the USA as he holds out for a move to Real Madrid.
Speaking to AS, AVB is reported as saying: “I think Modric is wrong. This will go against him. He has worsened the situation with what he’s doing and now the chairman (Daniel Levy) is very angry.
“This is also not a good time for Daniel Levy, who is in the USA at the moment, because his wife is ill.”
“He’s good, very good. I tried to sign him last summer for Chelsea. He will be a big loss. He’s a player who can make the difference, who gives a lot of clarity to the play when the team needs it and who can play in several positions,” he added.
Modric’s behaviour is nothing short of disrespectful for his new manager and everyone associated with Spurs.
