Harry Redknap has urged Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy to give Luka Modric a pay raise. The Croatian playmaker disappointed many Spurs fans by asking for a move to Chelsea during this summer.
The 26-years-old criticized Levy in a Croatian newspaper, accusing him of reneging on an agreement that would allow him to leave if a significant bit came in. Levy turned down Chelsea’s 40 million pounds offer and made the Croatian player to keep his position.
Positive or not, he has a thrilling start of a season, succeeding to pull some magic and put it on the field. One of the recent examples is last Spurs game against Liverpool won with 4-0 and making a perfect game, crowned by a splendid goal.
The important thing is that he has his coach support: “You can’t say he is worth 40 million and want to pay him wages of someone who is worth 5 million. You have to look after the boy and I’m sure we will do that and his future is hopefully here. We have to make it right for him, that’s only fair as well, and I’m sure the chairman will be fair and make sure he does that.” were Redknap’s words.
Next on Tottenham’s schedule is the Premier League fixture against Wigan Athletic. This could be the perfect moment for Modric to show once again that he deserves more.
