I have only one regret from my time at White Hart Lane – Modric
Croatian midfielder, Luka Modric has talked about his only regret during his time at Spurs as he wished he achieved what he had his mind on that spurred his controversial move to Madrid in 2012.
The midfield maestro spent four spectacular seasons with the North Londoners where he established himself as a pro in the game making more than 150 appearances before sealing a move to Spain.
In spite of his brilliance, he left England having won no major title and he revealed that that really hurts till date.
While speaking with reporters about his exciting days in London which ended in an unexciting way, Modric said: “My one regret is that I didn’t win a trophy with Tottenham, despite us being a strong team who played good, attractive football.
“I’m sorry for the way I left. I wish we had parted in a nicer way. I hope fans understand that I followed my dreams.
“My emotions when I think about the time I spent at Spurs are always really positive. Tottenham is the club that first gave me my opportunity to play in one of the strongest leagues in the world.
“I had a fantastic relationship with the people at the club, and also the fans. The whole atmosphere in and around the club at that time was brilliant, and our results were mostly very good.
“We once featured in the Champions League quarter-finals against my current club, Real Madrid and we played in a League Cup final too.”
“I always enjoy watching Tottenham’s games and I really like what the club has become over the last few seasons.
“They play the kind of enjoyable and attacking football that I like to see, and I definitely think Spurs could win the Premier League title in the near future, they’ve got excellent players.”
