Modric thanks Spurs fans

Luka Modric has paid tribute to Tottenham’s supporters after his return from injury.

The Croatian came off the bench during the 1-0 defeat to Wolves to make his first appearance since fracturing his fibula against Birmingham City in August.

He told the club’s official website: “The reception the fans gave me when I came on meant a lot to me. They have been great and I want to thank them for that.

“I’m glad to be back but overall I’m disappointed because we lost the game. Now we just need to turn it around and win on Wednesday.

“Three months is a long time and it’s going to be difficult when you come back. I just need to take it step by step and hopefully I will be back to how I was before the injury very soon.

“It’s always better when you’ve got another game soon after a defeat because you can recover straight away. Hopefully we will play better than we did on Saturday.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. The best way to express thanks would have been to win the game

    But clearly thousands a week to play football isn’t enough to motivate Spurs players

  2. Bit harsh… The guy hasn’t played a full speed Premiership match in nearly 3 months!!! And he still looked more up to speed than Hudd, Defoe or most of the team! When we start realising that the long aimless ball to the giant doesn’t work we’ll start putting teams away! How many did we score against Wigan from long balls????

    Anyway Modric is the star of this team…I was only too glad to see him pull on the lily white shirt again!!!!

  3. Your name is as vaild as your opinion Mr No Name.
    Luckily I am here to squash muppets.
    Modric is a class act and it the minority of idiot armchair fans like the above who embarass us on Radio 5 and Talksport.

    I know; Lets sack a good manager, sell the whole team and start again. Lets see where that gets us…

    Hold on we tried that; bottom of the league and 2 points. One crap result doesn’t make a season (to paraphrase the bard), get behind the team and we will continue to improve. Has any other team improved as much as us in the last 13 months?
