Paco Jiminez believes Luka Modric, who has been linked with Manchester United, as the danger to Spain
Spain assistant Paco Jiminez believes that Tottenham star Luka Modric will be a danger for Croatia in their final group game at Euro 2012.
The two countries meet on Monday and Jimenez believes that the playmaker and team-mate Mario Mandzukic are the two key players in the game at Gdansk.
“Croatia are playing very well and many of their fans have come to Poland and that gives them a lift that makes them more dangerous,” Jimenez declares.
“They have good players like Modric and Mandzukic and in defence it has worked out well for them putting Corluka in central defence.
“Modric has impressed me a great deal, he is a fantastic footballer and Mandzukic is playing very well.
“He gets up well to head the ball, he fights for everything and we are going to have trouble controlling him effectively.”
