Tottenham have confirmed that midfielder Luka Modric will be sidelined for a fortnight after undergoing an operation to remove his flared appendix last night, meaning that the Croatian is highly unlikely to be available to face AC Milan in the Champions League on February 15th.

Spurs released the following statement earlier today:

“Luka Modric has undergone surgery to remove his appendix.

“He was diagnosed with acute appendicitis after contacting our medical staff complaining of abdominal discomfort.

“He is likely to be sidelined for around two weeks.”

Jesus Christi, have Spurs got anyone left?

    Haha have Spurs got anyone left? As an Everton fan I find this funny because the players who are injured are who, Bale, Huddlestone and now Luka? seemingly surplus to requirements are none less than:
    Niko Kranjcar
    Jermaine Jenas (7m)
    David Bentley (15m)
    Jamie O’Hara
    Gio Dos Santos
    Sandro (Around 14m)
    With the likes of Van Der Vaart, Pienaar, Lennon, Palacios to play? Oh no. Cruel World.

  2. […] tomorrow evening – though playmaker Luka Modric is unexpected to be back after having his appendix removed just 12 days […]
