After a long and uncertain summer, Luka Modric settled down to business and opened the scoring with an early contender for goal of the season in yesterday’s 4-0 win over Liverpool.
Tottenham’s player of the year in 2010-11 was back to his best in all departments and manager Harry Redknapp has called on Daniel Levy to move to offer Luka a new contract,
“Luka is fine now, he’s just getting on with it. I think the chairman will sit down with him and discuss his contract,” Redknapp said.
“That’s what I’d like to happen.
“The chairman has said he would give it six or seven weeks, sit down and have a chat with him.”
Speaking about his contribution yesterday, Harry added,
“It was a great strike. That’s why we were offered £40million for him, because he’s a top player.”
Whatever the future may bring for Luka, it was a relief for many to see him back at this best and if the form from yesterday continues, there’s no reason why Spurs can’t achieve a higher finish than the men from Stamford Bridge at the end of this campaign.
