Comeback trail: Playmaker Modric
Luka Modric cannot wait to get back into action for Tottenham after making a return from a fractured leg with the reserves.
The Croatia midfielder played 70 minutes of Tuesday's training ground friendly against Grays Athletic.
Manager Harry Redknapp was an interested spectator and Modric hopeshis recovery will soon see him back in action with the first team.
Modric said:"I did not feel any pain and that is the most important thing. It is great to be back and I am happy. It is a relief after three months."
The midfielder added: "I can't wait to play again. The last three months have been hard, but that's behind me now.
"I will take it step by step and I'll have to see now when the manager decides to put me back in the squad."
Spurs are currently fourth in the Barclays Premier League, andModric feels there are plenty of reasons to be positive for the rest ofthe campaign.
He said: "We have a great team, a great squad, lots of quality players and that is good for the club.
"We have plenty of options and that's positive. I hope we can keep it going."
Coach Clive Allen said: 'He worked hard in the game, he needed thematch practice and I'm sure it will bring him on a great deal.'
