Tottenham's Dembele doesn't want to be compared with Modric

Moussa Dembele insists he is not a similar player to Luka Modric and wants comparisons between the pair to end.

The 25-year old Belgian was signed by Tottenham from Fulham in the summer to replace Croatian playmaker Modric, who departed for Real Madrid, but he says that is the only connection stuck between the two.

"Before I came to Tottenham, I was a big fan of Luka Modric," he told the Daily Mirror.

"For me, he was one of the best in England but I am a totally different player.

"He had different qualities and I have different qualities as well so I don't feel I have to do exactly what he did, I do my own game.

"I try my best to be as important as he was and that would be a great achievement."
