Luka Modric wants Tottenham to win title but rules out Premier League return

Sankha Ghosh / 13 February 2016

Luca Modric has revealed while speaking to Daily Mail, he does not have any unfinished business in the Premier League and wants to stay with Real Madrid for as long as possible.

However, the Croat admitted he spent four great years with Tottenham and will always remain grateful to the club for how they treated him during his time in north London.

When asked if he has any unfinished business in Premier League, Modric said: “No, I don’t look that way.

“I had four great years in Tottenham and I enjoyed my time there. I had support from everyone – from the fans, especially – and I will be always grateful for all love that they showed me during these years.

“I still have two and a half more years on more contract and I will try to be here as long as possible.”

Recently, some Tottenham supporters have been comparing Mauricio Pochettino’s current team and Harry Redknapp’s star-studded batch of individuals.

And it was also suggested that the Spurs would have already wrapped up the league title this season if they still had Modric and Gareth Bale. It’s really tough to disagree, with the Croat now regarded as one of Real Madrid’s consistent performers.

Modric also hopes his former team Tottenham can win the Premier League this season.

Spurs will take on Manchester City tomorrow and if they manage to win they will certainly be in the title race.

The highly rated midfielder explained how he still follows the north London side’s progress.

“I follow them a lot. Almost whenever I can, I watch them playing,” he said in an interview with the BBC.

“They’re playing really well, amazing, they have a good coach and they are very close to winning the league.

“And I wish them all the best and cross fingers for them to win it because I think they are capable of [doing it] because they are playing really good football.”

The Croatian is not at all a prolific scorer by any stretch of the imagination. Still, having showed a blistering shot from distance on a few occasions during his career, nine goals in 156 appearances for Real Madrid tells the exact story of a defensive midfielder in a team loaded with offensive talent.
