Bond backtracks on Modric sale
Tuesday 02 August 2011
Assistant manager Kevin Bond last night attempted to allay worries Tottenham may sell Luka Modric, after admitting earlier in the day he feared the playmaker was set to leave White Hart Lane.
With Chelsea weighing up whether to make a third bid for the Croatia international, Bond said yesterday morning that "every player has his price".
That comment is at odds with chairman Daniel Levy, who has previously insisted Modric is not for sale "at any price", and last night Bond stated: "In case my comments inadvertently misled anyone, the club's position is quite clear – we have no intention of selling him."
And why are 'southern' ways of speaking spreading north?
