Modric on the Mend

Luka Modric will play in a behind-closed-doors friendly for Tottenham on Tuesday afternoon as he continues his recovery from the broken leg he suffered in August after a challenge from Lee Bowyer.

The Croat was originally ruled out for just eight weeks but complications mean he has only recently returned to light training. If he comes through the friendly unscathed, he could return to the full squad to face Wolves this weekend.

Wilson Palacios is still a doubt for that game after suffering a rib injury in Sunday's 2-2 draw with Everton.
That's a fine "how do you do" for me as I'm looking to Krancjar as a great option for the upcoming week.  It's enough that 'arry could inexplicably drop him at any time - and has - or give Keane a run out in midfield instead of the Kranc.  Now I have the "will he won't he" worry with Modric in the frame as well.


  1. I don't think Harry will push Modric. Spurs are doing relatively fine without him, will only be better WITH him. So no need to rush him back. I'm eyeing Kranj also. MAYBE switch Milner to him. argh. similar players.

    Kranj > Milner due to scheduling for this 2-gamer...
