Injury expert Dr. Rajpal Brar has revealed that Tottenham Hotspur’s rising star midfielder, Pape Matar Sarr, is set miss the upcoming match against West Ham United.
Dr. Brar emphasised Sarr’s ongoing recovery process, indicating the 21-year-old’s gradual reintegration into match fitness.
The expert outlined a cautious approach, mentioning a phased routine for Sarr, beginning with partial training and progressing to full team sessions contingent on his response.
However, Dr. Brar indicated that Sarr hasn’t reached the required stage in his recovery to be available for first-team action.
Speaking to Tottenham News, he said:
“Based on the comments, sounds like he’s close to returning to team training and then re-introduced in matches gradually.
“His routine will first be partial training and then if he responds well, then full team training.
“However, for him to be available for first-team games, he’ll need to be at that stage in his recovery and he does not appear to be there yet.“
Despite enjoying a stellar season so far, emerging as a regular starter alongside Yves Bissouma, Sarr encountered a setback following the international break, sidelining him for the game against Villa and Manchester City.
He is now set to miss the clash against West Ham, as confirmed by the manager hinself.
He has started 12 games in the league, scoring one goal and assisting 2, proving to be a key player for Ange Postecoglou.
The good news is that he is back in training and could return for the game against Newcastle on Sunday.
