Bilic says Spurs ace Modric as good as Xavi, Pirlo

Croatia coach Slaven Bilic has hailed the ability of Tottenham ace Luka Modric.

It was revealed yesterday that Manchester United had agreed terms with Spurs over a fee for the midfielder.

Bilic enthused: "Italy have Pirlo, Spain have Xavi but we have Modric.

"I'm not saying Xavi or Pirlo are bad players. I'm saying Luka is as good as them."
