Luke Modric is one of the best footballers on the planet at the moment and he’s being heavily tipped to end Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo’s dominance by winning the Ballon d’Or this year. However, the Croatian is a former Spurs player and when he was pictured with Harry Kane on Friday, Tottenham fans everywhere were calling for his return.

In a rare turn of events, neither Kane nor Modric were able to influence the result on Friday evening as the repeat of the World Cup semi-final clash petered out into a 0-0 draw inside the empty Stadion HNK Rijeka. The game had already made the headlines for the fact that it was being played behind closed doors, although the Three Lions couldn’t get the better of the World Cup finalists despite the lack of atmosphere.
Both Harry Kane and Luka Modric were the two stars that the fans would have been tipping to influence the tie, with Kane the World Cup golden boot winner and Modric the Golden Ball winner. However, Spurs past and present weren’t on their best night and when they were pictured together afterwards, a lot of Tottenham fans started to call for the Croatian maestro to join Kane back in North London.

The Spurs fans loved seeing Modric and Kane together and will hope that next time they’re wearing the same shirt when they meet.
