Spurs signing Modric: Ramos told me I'm among best in world

Luka Modric has revealed how Tottenham manager Juande Ramos was full of praise for him in their first meeting together on Saturday.

Modric met Ramos after the Bolton match, but has not yet been properly introduced to his new team-mates.

"Ramos thinks that I am one of best young players in world, but I need to prove that again for Tottenham and also in the European Championship this summer," Modric said. "He said I was a good signing for the club."

After more medical tests yesterday, Modric will return to Zagreb today to aid his club's challenge for the league and cup. He has been offered a five-year deal by Tottenham believed to be worth about £60,000 a week and will wear the No14 shirt because his favoured No10 is worn by Robbie Keane, the forward.

As part of the £15.5million deal, Tottenham will play Zagreb in two friendly matches, the first at White Hart Lane in the summer.
