Furious Tottenham blame Modric for undermining US promotion tour

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is furious with the behaviour of Luka Modric. The Daily Mail says Levy is determined to resist being forced to sell the midfielder for less than £40million, feeling his tantrum has undermined the club's promotional drive in America.

The Croatia midfielder has been fined £80,000 after failing to attend pre-season training last week and then snubbing the club's pre-season tour of the United States, infuriating club chiefs.

Spurs announced on Monday night that Modric has returned to training.

Tottenham have announced American-based sportswear firm Under Armour as their new kit manufacturers and Levy is furious the stance of Modric is overshadowing the club's PR drive.
