Modric keen to end Old Trafford jinx

28 October 2010 04:00
Tottenham playmaker Luka Modric believes his side are ready to break their Old Trafford jinx on Saturday. Spurs have not won at the home of Manchester United for 21 years, but a victory would take them above their hosts in the Barclays Premier League table. Modric is taking inspiration from the fright Tottenham gave Inter Milan at the San Siro recently, when they came within a whisker of claiming a Champions League point despite falling 4-0 down. He told the club's official website: "We showed against Inter in the second half that we can compete with the best teams in the world and United is certainly one of the best teams in the world. "But why not go there and try to win? "I know Tottenham haven't won at Old Trafford for a long time, so why not now?"
