Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho issues Toby Alderweireld injury update

As reported by the Evening Standard, Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho has revealed that Toby Alderweireld will be ruled out for two to four weeks but the injury isn’t as bad as feared earlier.

The 31-year-old pulled up with an injury late in the game against Manchester City this past weekend even as we went on to win 2-0 and move to the summit of the Premier League table.

However, the Portuguese tactician has eased any such fears, insisting that the injury isn’t as bad as earlier thought. But Alderweireld will miss out for two to four weeks of action. (h/t Evening Standard)

“He has a muscular injury but not as big as we initially thought. He will have time to be out but not like a month which is what we immediately thought. So I would say between two and four weeks.”

While there is some relief that Alderweireld will be back in action soon, there is also some concern as the defender will now miss key fixtures against Chelsea and Arsenal, while he could be touch-and-go for the game against reigning Premier League champions Liverpool as well.

But there is some silver lining though, as this will finally give new signing Joe Rodon an extended run in the starting XI. The Welshman has hardly featured since making the move from Swansea City in the summer. And Alderweireld’s absence will provide him with a chance to stake a claim for more regular involvement moving forward.
