Redknapp praises first class Modric


Luka Modric Harry Redknapp - Tottenham Hotspur News

Harry Redknapp has praised Luka Modric for his attitude despite the fact he wants to leave Tottenham Hotspur.

The Croatian is desperate for a move to Chelsea but still travelled with the rest of the Spurs squad to South Africa and captained the side in two of their games.

Redknapp said: “His attitude has been first class, he’s just got on with it.

“There are players who, if they wanted to move and didn’t, would really not want to be playing.

“But he only knows one way to play. He’s a fantastic pro and his attitude couldn’t have been better.

“We don’t want to sell Luka. We can’t just be selling our best players.

“Certain players have that extra bit of class, like Rafa van der Vaart – he scores two again, he scored the other day, a great free-kick. You can’t replace them.

“Luka and Rafa are special. You have to keep special ones, they make the difference.” 

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Looks like an attempt to stop relations with fans deteriorating, reassuring us that he will be professional and give his best. Of course his absolute best may not quite be there initially, but it will probably return in time if he regains his commitment to us.

    I'm sure it's his agent that has had his ear and the thought to leave didn't come from himself. It's fine to show our disappointment that he may want to leave, but lets not force him out the door!

    If he's our player, playing for us, i'll cheer him at the lane.

  2. Absolutely Alexis, point well made. If he’s wearing a Spurs shirt he will always get my full support… the gooners never booed Fabregas did they? So why should we stoop below them? (plus i have loads of Spurs shirts with Modric on the back – he better stay! lol)

  3. How ridiculous for Redknapp to praise someone who is just doing their job. The other side of the coin is that Modric is a would be contract breaker. No Modric you don't have to love Spurs just honour the contract that no one forced you to sign
