Andre Villas-Boas has told Luka Modric to get his head around the fact that he will not be sold unless another club meets Tottenham's asking price.
Spurs rebel Modric has been training alone since being fined last month for going AWOL in an apparent attempt to force through a move to Real Madrid. But new Tottenham boss Villas-Boas has warned the 26-year-old playmaker to be ready to accept he may end up staying and urged him to respond accordingly.
"He is training alone because we decided to do that until his mental state is ready to return to the team," Villas-Boas said. "It is important that, in the coming days, he understands he must return to the first team. We respect the player's ambition, but he must also respect the club."
