Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric may be one of the most decorated footballers in European football but the Croatian claims he regrets one thing about his career.
Having won 11 major trophies in the past six seasons with Los Blancos, the 32-year-old revealed his biggest regret is not winning a trophy with his former club Tottenham Hotspur, during a four-year spell in England.
The Croatia international developed into one of the most technically gifted playmakers during his time at White Hart Lane before forcing a £30 million move to Real in 2012.
"My one regret is that I didn't win a trophy with Tottenham, despite us being a strong team who played good, attractive football," he told FourFourTwo. "I'm sorry for the way I left. I wish we had parted in a nicer way. I hope fans understand that I followed my dreams.
"My emotions when I think about the time I spent at Spurs are always really positive. Tottenham is the club that first gave me my opportunity to play in one of the strongest leagues in the world."
