Modric doesn't blame Bowyer
Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric insists he does not blame Lee Bowyer for the tackle that broke his leg.
Modric will be sidelined for at least six weeks as a result of the injury he sustained in a collision with Bowyer at the start of the second half in Saturday's 2-1 victory over Birmingham at White Hart Lane.
The 23-year-old will miss several of second-placed Tottenham's Premier League matches, as well Croatia's crucial World Cup qualifier against England on September 9 at Wembley.
Bowyer has been no stranger to controversy throughout his career but Modric does not believe the Birmingham midfielder intended to hurt him.
"It was not a ferocious tackle but it hurt awfully and I knew something was wrong the moment it happened," Modric told the Sun on Monday.
