Huge boost for Tottenham: Star player confirms he is close to returning from injury

By Mehdi Gokal -

Ange Postecoglou’s recently injured player, Pedro Porro, has suggested that his return to the field is imminent.

Tottenham’s right-back had managed to stay injury-free throughout the season until last week when his absence from the club’s open training session ahead of the side’s league fixture against Wolves raised concerns about his fitness.

During a press conference on Friday, head coach Postecoglou confirmed that Porro had been sidelined due to a muscle injury. The full-back sustained a strain during training and is expected to be out of action for a few weeks.

However, the Spaniard shared a positive update by posting a compilation of him working out in the gym on his TikTok account. , with the caption: “Back soon”

Porro even responded to a fan’s question, asking, “How long, Porro, not sure whether to transfer you out my FPL team?” to which he replied, “Don’t sell me,” accompanied by a laughing face emoji.

The absence of the 24-year-old was keenly felt in the side’s recent league defeat against Wolves last Saturday, as his replacement, Emerson Royal, struggled to replicate Porro’s impact.

The former Sporting defender has consistently been on Spurs’ teamsheet, starting in all 23 Premier League games he has been available for.

Porro has proven to be a crucial creative outlet for the Lilywhites, demonstrating his impact with eight assists this season as a defender. This tally places him joint-4th highest in the division.

Alongside Porro, Tottenham’s left-back Destiny Udogie has also been sidelined and missed the game against the Wanderers.

His return will be a huge boost for Tottenham in their bid to finish in the top 4.
