Luka Modric has spoken of his delight at being back in the side for Tuesday’s win over AC Milan. Luka has been in top form this season, before a bout of appendicitis saw him out of the team for a couple of weeks.
“I feel much better”, Luka said on the club website, “I know I didn’t play for two weeks or have normal training, which was hard, but now I feel good.”
Modric came on for Rafael van der Vaart in the second half and was thrilled with the result: “It was unbelievable. We scored the goal and we showed we’re a great team, even if we’re missing a couple of important players.
“We showed we could cope with big teams and that we can perform well and beat them away from home, which is a massive achievement for us.”
Luka’s return is a timely one for Spurs. He’s been in great form and is a fans’ favourite and we hope he stays fit and continues his fine form throughout our crucial run in.
