Luka Modric is an early doubt for the clash with AC Milan in two weeks after undergoing appendix surgery.
Modric had the operation to remove the inflamed appendix on Tuesday night and he is now set for at least two weeks on the sidelines.
The injury is just the latest in a long line of problems for Harry Redknapp and his hopes of progressing in the Champions League are being undermined by injuries at the club. A statement read:
“Luka Modric has undergone surgery to remove his appendix.
“The Croatia midfielder was diagnosed with acute appendicitis after contacting our medical staff complaining of abdominal discomfort.
“He is likely to be sidelined for around two weeks.”
