Pochettino provides latest injury update on key Tottenham star

Published

on

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino spoke about Kieran Trippier’s injury after the right-back was substituted late on in the 1-0 win over Newcastle United.

The former Burnley defender had to be replaced in the 83rd minute due to what looked like a knee injury and Pochettino was quoted by Football.London as saying:

“We need to wait until tomorrow, after tomorrow we will assess. I hope and I wish it is not a big issue. Of course we are a little concerned about the situation, only the wishes and I hope that it is not a big issue and he can be ready and fit to play the World Cup. I think it was a twist of his knee.”

That would be a big concern for the English team as another defender seems set to miss the World Cup, with Liverpool’s Joe Gomez going under the knife and getting work done on his ankle.

That would free up a spot for the right-back slot and with five weeks to go, Trippier now faces a race against time to get back to full fitness.

The 27-year-old has done a pretty good job for us since Kyle Walker moved to Manchester City at the start of the season. The former Burnley man has 8 assists to his name this season and has played 27 games in the Champions League and the Premier League.

The match against Newcastle was an important one for us as the three points ensured our entry into next season’s Champions League. That was a great achievement from the side and playing in our new stadium will be an added bonus as we look to pick up a title under our manager.

Pochettino has made us one of the best teams in the world and he has had a hand in turning Trippier into a quality player too. Hopefully, the Englishman will be part of the World Cup in Russia and lead England to some sort of glory too.
