UCL: What a player – Redknapp wants Real Madrid star in EPL club


Former Tottenham Hotspur manager, Harry Redknapp, wants Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric to rejoin Spurs.

Redknapp managed Modric at Tottenham during their time together at the Premier League club in the past.

He also heaped praises on the 37-year-old after his impressive performances for Real Madrid in their Champions League round of 16 second-leg 1-0 victory over Liverpool on Wednesday night at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Speaking after the game, Redknapp labelled Modric, whose contract with Real Madrid will expire in the summer, as a great lad and a fantastic player.

He told talkSPORT: “What a player! Do you know you used to come in in the mornings and you’d have a piggy for piggy in the middle, after four years I said, ‘I don’t think I have ever seen you go in the middle?’

“He never gave it away, what a great lad. I tell you what, is he out of contract at the end of the year? I think they are discussing whether they are going to give him another deal.”

He added: “He’s 37, and I tell you what, you’d take him. Even if you were Liverpool, you’d take him back at Tottenham. He’d come in and he’s so great around the place, and he plays every minute of every game, and he’s still a fantastic player. I loved him, he’s low maintenance, just lives for football.”
