Spurs midfielder Modric a doubt for AC Milan match

BY foxsports • February 2, 2011

Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric has been ruled out for two weeks after undergoing surgery to remove his appendix, making him a doubt for the club's Champions League match at AC Milan on Feb. 15.

Tottenham says the Croatia international has been ''diagnosed with acute appendicitis after contacting our medical staff complaining of abdominal discomfort.''

Modric will miss three English Premier League matches for Spurs, which is fifth in the table, and could also miss the first leg of the team's Champions League last-16 meeting with Milan at the San Siro.

Along with fellow midfielders Rafael van der Vaart and Gareth Bale, Modric has been one of Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp's best players this season.
