Redknapps rues loss of trio


Luka Modric - Header

Harry Redknapp has admitted his side has struggled without the attacking trio of Luka Modric, Aaron Lennon and Jermain Defoe.

Modric has been missing since the end of August after breaking his leg against Birmingham, with results having tailed off since he’s been out of the team.

Defoe has missed the last three games after being sent off against Portsmouth, whilst Lennon missed the defeat to Arsenal after picking up an ankle injury against Stoke.

And Redknapp has felt the absence of those three, with Spurs not holding the same attacking threat they did at the start of the season.

“They are three of my best players. Modric is a world-class player in my opinion. Lennon is a threat when he has the ball and goes at people.

“Defoe has been in incredible form this year. Suddenly we miss him for three games. It’s cost us dearly when he got sent off at Portsmouth.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. I thought we where supposed to have the better squad in depth???? If that was the case we wouldnt be losing and blaming it on 3 missing players.

  2. i am a massive jermaine defoe fan, but his “incredible” form is not that incredible. i will be looking for him to hit the back of the net at the weekend rather than look back at the excitement of him scoring a hat-trick against pishy hull! modric is our biggest loss!

  3. our squad is still strong. kranjar on the left, bentley on the right and robbie, pav/crouch up front. that’s pretty good if you ask me. although i wish modric would come back from this injury real soon. i miss the little git :)

  4. Pls stop including Bentley as a quality player. I’d rather have naughton filling up for lennon. Atleast he has got some pace. He almost got sent off against Arsenal with his indiscipline. The last thing we need is to be playing 10man against Sunderland at home and losing another home game! Harry shouldn’t have loaned out half the squad in the first place!
