Spurs suffer massive Modric injury blow

Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that Luka Modric has suffered a fracture of his right fibula.

The midfielder picked up the injury just after half-time in the 2-1 win against Birmingham City at White Hart Lane in a tackle with Lee Bowyer – up to that point, Modric had been having one of his best games for Spurs.

The Croatian international will be out of action for a minimum of anywhere between 4-6 weeks.

What do you make of this news? Who should take his place?

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Lets wait and see. The term ‘broken leg’, which is being reported in most places is a slight exaggeration. Eduardo had a broken leg, this is a fractured fibula and he did walk off the pitch so you gotta think he’ll be back well before Xmas but who knows – I would be surprised he is still out at Xmas.

  2. Bring back O’Hara, problem solved. Also don;t forget we have Giovani Dos Santos who was player of the tournament this summer in the CONCACAF Gold Cup.. Additionaly Robbie Keane can play in the same position.. So could see more from Crouch.. We are still very strong even if he is out for 8 weeks..


  3. try n get o’hara back. put keane left and put crouch or pav up wid jermain if hes not badly injured aswell. but other than that its time for bently or gio to shine. coys

  4. jus heard we are bout to sign van der varrt on loan till end of the season with option to make it permenant. great move from harry especially as of modric's injury. what do u lot think bout this?
