Croatian midfielder Ivan Perisic told reporters that he consulted with his compatriot Luka Modric before moving to the London team.
Perisic told Sky Sports that Modric told him a lot of good things about the London team, but Luka trained at the old stadium and the old base, and now everything is much better here. The midfielder noted that he asked Modric for permission to take the 14th number, under which Modric played at Tottenham.
“Luka let me take his number and yes, it was a lot of fun,” added Perisic.
This summer Ivan Perisic moved to the Spurs camp from Inter Milan. The Croat made 35 appearances in the Italian league last season, scoring eight goals and making seven assists.
