Redknapp: Modric is a ‘fantastic talent’

Harry Redknapp has praised Luka Modric’s versatility and described the Croatian as a ‘fantastic talent’.

Modric has been impressive during Tottenham’s pre-season outings,  who starts on the left flank before drifting inside.

“He has been great there, he comes in off the left and finds space,” Redknapp said.

“It seems to have suited him and he’s slotted into that position fantastically so I don’t see why he can’t play there. He can play anywhere really, he’s that good.

“When you’re playing with smaller players you are looking to pass and play your way in and Luka pops up in that inside position which is a problem for full-backs.

“He has even played centrally and he was great. He’s such a good player, he could play almost anywhere. He’s a fantastic talent.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. A lot of us have recognized Luka’s ability from the very start. Build a team around him and you can’t go far wrong. Glad to see Harry agrees!

  2. bernard: are you mad???? i like cahill but why would you sell modric for him? modric is on a whole other level. you must be an everton fan taking the piss

  3. sell modric, are you mental? he is our most gifted player bar none! if you look at the games we actually played well in last season, and im the 1st to admit there aint loads to choose from, but they all have 1 tghing in common, modric pulled the strings. anyways, cahill is way too injury prone! coys

  4. bernard u need to take a long look at things, i am a big fan of tim but luka is a cut above in my opinion and is younger also. Luka wil give more assists in a season and hopefully this year he will score more

  5. united fan here .and a croat too :p – i must say i adore modric and wish you well this season – hopefully he takes the piss on cesc (again) and rubbs it into wenger’s face who said he would be too lightweight for EPL. i was at white hart lane last december to see you against us ( utd ) and i was happy to have an opportunity to see luka live – i knew he would make it in the EPL from the day 1. i was actually quite surprised that wenger decided to buy eduardo instead of him after arse had played against dinamo but oh well – his loss your gain …
