Andre Villas-Boas has blasted former Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric after the Croatian called on ex-team-mate Gareth Bale to join him to Real Madrid.
The 27-year-old revealed that he had spoken to Bale about his desire to one day win the Champions League, and insisted the Welshman’s presence at the Bernabeu would make Los Blancos “unstoppable”.
Modric’s comments prompted a response from Villas-Boas on Friday, with the Portuguese insisting the ex-Spurs man should focus on his commitments in La Liga instead of Bale’s future at White Hart Lane.
The 35-year-old said: “I think Modric should focus more on his club than ours.
“He has to worry about Real’s game against Atletico Madrid and about getting in to the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
“Obviously Modric is aware of Gareth’s performances because of his love for Tottenham and the fact that he is very connected with him and this football club, but it’s completely impossible.”
