Modric wants to be just like Hoddle and Gazza

Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric wants to become a White Hart Lane star like Glenn Hoddle and Paul Gascoigne.

Modric joined Spurs for £16.5million from Dinamo Zagreb.

Modric said: “I aspire to be loved by the fans like Hoddle and Gascoigne were.

“It’s a big inspiration for me and hopefully in time the fans can love me like those Spurs legends.

“They are really big players. But I don’t want to make any comparisons with them. I still have to show what I am fully capable of.”
