‘You Can Quote Me On That’ – Luka Modric

Super Luka Nuts Are We…. He’s our Champions League player. Perhaps our one player who can turn a game with those two hackneyed attributes of craft and guile. Anyway, here are some great quotes from the old chap himself. Enjoy!

“Harry is very similar to Bilic, but is scarier in the dressing room if we’re losing at half-time,”

“They both talk a lot to the players, they’re great motivators and know exactly what to say. Harry may be a little bit scarier, but every coach whose team is losing at half-time is not in a good mood.”

“I have freedom going forward, but also need to work hard in defence. I know what Harry expects and don’t want to let him down. Every coach has bad as well as good moments. If we play badly, he lets us know.”

“The Premier League is a fast and physical competition,” Modric said. “I know everyone suspected I was too soft for this league, but I think I’ve shown it’s not a problem. I’m not scared of anybody.

“I wasn’t supposed to be able to handle those things, but it’s not worked out like that. I like playing here. I watch a lot of football on television from all over the world and the Premier League is the best.”

“If you look at our squad, I think we deserve to be in the Champions League, especially the way we’ve played this year,” he said. “Everyone believes we deserve to be there, but that’s just the start.”

“Tottenham can reach the FA Cup semi-final, but we should be fighting for the [Premier League] title soon. I hope in the future we can win it. This season is the start of something big.”

“Everyone talks about Walcott in Zagreb, but ‘Azza’ was excellent against us in that 5-1 defeat at Wembley,” Modric said. “The Croatia team do not have great memories of Walcott and Lennon. They’re similar in many ways as they’re both right wingers, both very fast and both score goals. They love to go one-on-one with defenders and make it look easy as they’re so quick.”

“Azza is so fast. He was in great form this year and it’s a shame he’s injured now. His passing and crossing are much better than they used to be, as he stays behind after training to practise every day.”
