Modric aims high

Published Add your comment

Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric has targeted silverware and a top-five place in the Barclays Premier League in his rookie season in England.

Modric struggled to adapt following his move from Dinamo Zagreb in the summer, but Harry Redknapp's appointment as manager has led to the Croatia international being given a free role behind a lone striker and becoming an important influence on Spurs' revival.

Modric said: "Of course we have a huge job on our hands. But all the players believe we can rise up the table, and to aim for the top five is realistic and will secure us European football again next season."

He added: "Then, when we reach that milestone, we can push again - there is so much to come from this team this season."

The 23-year-old also wants a trophy this season, with Spurs in the last four of the Carling Cup and also in the knockout stages of the UEFA Cup.

Modric said: "We had some testing times at the start of the season but we have come a long way since then, and I still believe this year can be a very exciting one for everyone at Tottenham.

"It's great to be part of a squad that has so much quality in so many different areas - and although it has taken a while for things to come together, we are all very confident of getting our hands on some silverware before next summer."
