I’m very much liking of what I’m seeing of Luka Modric. In Croatia’s 2-1 win over Germany, the midfielder shone with his ability on the ball and passing.
Due to Croatia playing five in midfield, Modric had chances to forward and got in the box a few times, even in the latter stages of the game, showing what good stamina he’s got.
With Germany being a tall physical side, I did wonder how Modric would cope, however he got stuck in and showed he’s not such a lightweight despite his small stature.
Modric did get tackles in too, and was even booked for a two footed challenge – unfairly in my opinion.
Costing Spurs nearly Â£17m, I think we paid way too much, however we’ve lacked a player since Michael Carrick who can get on the ball and control midfield. In Modric, I think he can do that job brilliantly.
