Redknapp says Modric is 'a bit confused'
Friday 08 July 2011
The Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp admits Luka Modric is "confused" about his future but is still determined to hang on to his star midfielder.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy insisted yesterday that Modric who is 12 months into a six-year contract, would not be leaving this summer at any price after holding showdown talks with the Croatian at White Hart Lane.
Redknapp came face to face with Modric at the club's training base yesterday. "He's walked in today and is happy, but the kid's a bit confused," Redknapp said. "Other teams want him but we want him here and I want to keep him," Redknapp told Sky Sports News.
"He loves playing here. It's a difficult situation for him. He signed a contract here, we love him here and want him here."
