It's Official: Ivan Perišić Signs with Tottenham Hotspur!

May 31, 2022 - Ten years after Luka Modrić and Niko Kranjčar left the then White Hart Lane, English Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur has a new Croatian star in its ranks - Ivan Perišić!

Although this is not totally news, as the details of Ivan's contract at the English club are already known, the club officially announced it today, reports Gol.hr.

Ivan comes as the club's first reinforcement this season, but there is no doubt that there will be more. Namely, English media reveal that Eugene Levy has finally decided to bring in some big shots.

Thus, after ten years, Tottenham gets another Croat in their ranks. In the early 2010s, we can recall the nickname 'Crottenham', when under Harry Redknapp, in addition to Modrić and Kranjčar, Vedran Čorluka and Stipe Pletikosa played at the club, one season even at the same time. Interestingly, they are currently the only Croats to wear the Spurs jersey.

Shortly before Tottenham's announcement, Ivan said goodbye to Intern, which he has been a member of since 2015, spending one season on loan at Bayern winning the Champions League.

"After 254 games, 55 goals, 49 assists, 3 trophies and 18.934 minutes spent on the pitch wearing this glorious jersey; my journey here has come to an end.

Even though every end means a new beginning it’s important to reflect back on these past years and show you my deepest appreciation for the work accomplished. ⁣⁣⁣⁣

It was an unforgettable learning experience for me as a player and for my whole family. ⁣⁣⁣⁣

To the team, the staff, to all the employees but most importantly to the fans: you will always have a special place in my heart. ⁣⁣⁣⁣

I leave feeling privileged having this club in my portfolio," Ivan wrote on Instagram. 


Ivan will work at Tottenham with Antonio Conte, the manager who revived him in a new position in his two years as Inter coach. The two together won the Italian title in the 2020/21 season, and will now look for new challenges in North London.

Conte managed to introduce Tottenham to the Champions League at the dramatic end of the season.
