Injury expert Dr. Rajpal Brar has provided insights into Tottenham midfielder Giovani Lo Celso’s injury, describing it as ‘complicated’.
The Argentine sustained a hamstring injury during the match against Burnley and has been sidelined since then.
Details regarding the extent of Lo Celso’s injury have remained uncertain, with O’Keefe reporting that the details of his condition are still unknown.
Evening Standard recently reported that Lo Celso’s return date remains unclear and now Dr Brar has given his expert opinion on the matter.
He reveals that the midfielder is dealing with both hamstring and thigh concerns simultaneously, complicating his recovery process. He suggests that Lo Celso may not be fit in time for the upcoming clash against Brighton.
Speaking to Tottenham News, he said:
“Along with his thigh injury, he also has a hamstring injury so there is that additional fear it’s in a more complicated area such as nearer to the tendon.
“This means that the nerve involvement is significantly higher and can lead to multiple issues in the future.
“It’s imperative the club do not rush into bringing him back.
“Seems like they’re taking his fitness on a game by game basis which is the right thing to do so he may not be back for the next game if he has not recovered.“
Under Ange Postecoglou, Lo Celso has been putting in some of his finest performances in a Spurs shirt, despite playing a supporting role.
He has contributed significantly with four goals (two goals and two assists) in 10 league appearances, stepping up admirably during James Maddison’s absence.
