The crisis at Tottenham has put the pressure of a massive season squarely on the shoulders of the club’s new signings. Midfielder Luka Modric had no idea when he came to the club that he’d be under this much pressure; however, even with the slow start, Modric claims that he has no regrets about coming to Tottenham.
The Croatia international left Dinamo Zagreb for the Premier League outfit in a £15.8million during the close season, but has struggled to impress as the club started the Premier League campaign in woeful form.
Big things have been expected of the 22-year-old midfielder but, despite a slow start to life at White Hart Lane, Modric believes it is just a matter of time before his North London begins to bear fruit.
“No, I am not sorry I came to Tottenham at all,” he told The Sun.

Modric is right, the crisis can’t last forever. But at the moment, there’s no telling when this whole nightmare will end. It has been a difficult adjustment for the Croatian; from the physical play on the pitch, to the new lifestyle of living in England, Spurs supporters have to wonder when their star midfielder will put it all together. A goal during the week for his national team could be the medicine he needs to finally breakthrough.
