Spurs welcome back Modric
12 Dec 2009 - 10:38:37
Tottenham Hotspur's Croatian playmaker Luka Modric is set for a first-team return after more than three months out of action due to a broken leg.
The 24-year-old has not featured since the 2-1 home win over Birmingham City at the end of August, but may play some part against Wolves this weekend after lasting 70 minutes of a midweek friendly with Grays Athletic.
Boss Harry Redknapp confirmed: "Luka came through the reserve game and he was fine, which is good for us.
"It's good to have him back and available again. It's a bit early to start him at the moment, but he'll be involved on Saturday.
"He's a great player and one you obviously miss. We're lucky Niko Kranjcar has come in for us and played so well in that position during his absence and I could see them both playing in the same team at some point.
"But we need Luka back because he opens doors, he sees a pass or makes a dribble that causes the opposition problems - he's a super player."
