Luka Modrić Awarded Best Player Of Season For Tottenham











I bumped into a gaggle of cowboys or something the other day, and they told me I should add something on this blog about the upcoming summer week long cowboyfest-rodeo or something. (It's where all of a sudden people wear cowboy boots and hats and vests and pretend they're all cowboys or cowgirls..or something, they eat lots of stuff for a week, strangle some cows, kill some horses etc.  (But they don't look anything even remotely like THIS, it's actually closer to THIS or THIS.)  That's just the tourist brochure crap that they use to sell more beef jerky and chuckwagon belt buckles in the stores.

Anyway, I posted just a few days ago about a charity auction taking place in Zagreb in which Luka's original Tottenham Hotspur jersey is being used to help raise funds. You can check that out HERE. This particlular news story just came out today...

Luka Modric was named our Supporters Clubs Player of the Season in a ceremony at Spurs Lodge today (Saturday, May 21).

The midfield maestro took the prestigious award voted for by our Supporters Clubs worldwide.

Gareth Bale and Benoit Assou-Ekotto also picked up awards as Supporters Clubs from America to Australia, the Isle of Wight and closer to home in the UK were represented at the Supporters Clubs Awards at the training ground.

The fans watched training before the ceremony.

Luka’s outstanding performances in midfield secured the Player of the Season Award, presented by Darren Marsh of the Swindon Spurs Supporters Club.

"I'm delighted to receive this award and I'd like to thank all the supporters for voting for me," Luka told the supporters.

"It means a lot to me and I'm really happy to win it.

"I've enjoyed the season, especially as it was the first time we played in the Champions League.

"We all hoped to finish in the top four again but we will now try to beat Birmingham to finish fifth and play in the Europa League."








Gareth’s wonderful chest-high volley at Stoke back in August won the Supporters Clubs Goal of the Season Award, presented by Daniel Hitchins of Chicago Spurs.

"It's not something I really practiced," admitted Gareth. "The ball came over and I just tried to keep it on target. You don't think about it too much. It was a spur of the moment thing and thankfully it went into the top corner.

"There have been plenty of good moments this season and it's hard to pick out one. It's been a great season for me and for everyone."

The third and final award was the Spur of the Season Award, an award for ‘effort, attitude and performance’ over the season and it went to super-consistent left-back Benoit Assou-Ekotto.

This award was presented by Tim Smart from the Isle of Wight Supporters Club.

"I really enjoy playing for Spurs," said Benoit, before picking out the win at Arsenal as his highlight. "We know how important that game is for everyone."
