Tottenham supporters have voted for Luka Modric as their player of the season after some consistent performances throughout 2010-11 and while it’s hard to argue with that outcome, who else could stake a claim for that prize?
Throughout this week we’ll look at some of Spurs’ best players of this campaign and look at their credentials to challenge Luka. For today, here are some of the better performers from our defence.
Captain for much of the season due to the continued absence of Ledley King, Michael suffered a bad injury of his own while away on England duty. He returned to claim the armband and consistent performances have lead many to suggest that Harry should make him our permanent club captain for next season.
Signed as a free agent at the start of the campaign, he immediately stepped in and probably played more games than most would have expected. A fierce competitor, he quickly became a fans favourite and turned in solid performances week in – week out.
While he may not be the choice of many, BAE had enjoyed a consistent season overall before succumbing to injury towards the end. Apart from a couple of notable bad games, he was probably the first name on Harry’s teamsheet.
We’ll look at other contenders through the rest of the week, but for now, could any of these three have mounted a credible challenge as our player of the year?
