Tottenham Injury Update Ahead Of Brighton Game: Midfielder Resumes Training As He Steps Up Recovery

Published

on

Victor Wanyama returned to training with his Tottenham Hotspur team-mates on Monday. The 26-year-old has not played since August because of a knee injury and has been training outdoors on his own in recent weeks, as a part of the rehabilitation process.

“Victor Wanyama joined part of training today as he continues his rehab,” Tottenham revealed on their official Twitter account, along with a picture of the player in action.

Wanyama sustained the injury during the training ahead of Spurs’ win over Burnley on August 27. He had played in both of the club’s opening Premier League games against Newcastle and Chelsea. Eric Dier had settled into a midfield role in Wanyama’s absence but the England international has been forced to play at centre-back because of an injury to Toby Alderweireld more recently.

The Kenya international is unlikely to be thrust straight back into action. Both Erik Lamela and Danny Rose were included in training with their team-mates, weeks before their actual return, to help them with the complete recovery process.

However, Wanyama will miss the game against Brighton and Hove Albion on Wednesday and it’s still foggy on whether he will be ready to return for the busy festive schedule ahead of the New Year. It so happened that Wanyama’s supporters took to the streets ahead of Tottenham’s 5-1 win over Stoke on Saturday.

Members of the Tottenham fan club in Machakos – a small town southwest of Kenya’s capital Nairobi, carried out a peaceful procession to wish Wanyama well. The Kenyan’s supporters marched through the streets, dressed in replica Spurs kits and t-shirts embossed with the image of the national team captain. They were carrying a big sign reading: “Wanyama, get well soon.”

The midfielder thanked his supporters on Twitter, posting images from the procession along with the message: “Thanks for the support Tottenham fan club in Kenya, I promise to come back better and stronger very soon.”

Looks like the supporters’ prayers have worked wonders as Wanyama has joined finally joined training with the first-team squad. This will come as a massive boost for Poch as we have lacked the solidity in midfield during Wanyama’s absence.

Although he remains out tomorrow, let’s hope he gains match fitness as soon as possible and becomes ready to step up whenever our gaffer calls him.
