Bilic hails Spurs signing Modric after Croatia victory

Croatia coach Slaven Bilic hailed Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric after last night's performance against Germany.

Modric's star is certainly on the rise, and his display against the Germans showed just why Spurs splashed out around £16.5million to sign the 22-year-old from Dinamo Zagreb prior to the European Championships.

Bilic is also a huge fan of Modric, believing there is no-one better on the continent, but he was also keen not to undervalue the contributions of his other players.

"Luka is a star even without this tournament, I keep saying to him every day that he is the best player in Europe, but he is not the only great player on our team," Bilic said after the match in Klagenfurt.

"We have world-class players, and they prove it day in, day out at every training session, in every match and in every part of the pitch."
