Tottenham Hotspur’s interim manager, Cristian Stellini, provided an update on the team’s injuries ahead of their game against Bournemouth.
The North London club has been plagued by injuries this season, which has had a significant impact on their performances.
Stellini revealed that Brazilian forward Richarlison is the only player who has recovered and rejoined the team after a week of training.
However, the manager emphasised the need to be cautious with Richarlison and not rush him back into action to avoid any potential risks.
He told Football London:
“We have only Richarlison with one-week training with us.
“Only Richy completely back and we recover him, The other players they start to work but work alone so they are not available.
“We have to take care with him to give him training and the right time to play. Don’t take risks.”
In terms of other injured players, such as Ben Davies and Ryan Sessegnon, Stellini referred the question to the team’s doctors, as they are currently working alone and not training with the squad.
Stellini acknowledged that the medical team is doing their best to ensure a safe return for the players, but he did not have a definite timeline for their availability.
Tottenham currently sits fifth in the Premier League table, with Newcastle and Manchester United ahead of them.
Although there is only a three-point gap between Spurs and the other two teams, both Newcastle and Manchester United have a game in hand, making every remaining game crucial for Tottenham’s push for a top-four finish.
Injuries have been a major setback for Spurs this season, with key players such as Rodrigo Bentancur, Yves Bissouma, and Lloris all facing spells on the sidelines.
However, Stellini remains hopeful that with the return of some of the injured players,
Tottenham can bounce back and finish the season strong.
As Tottenham prepares for their upcoming game against Bournemouth, Stellini and the team will be hoping for a much-needed boost in the form of fully fit players.
Tottenham fans will be eagerly awaiting updates on the fitness of their key players as the team aims to push for a top-four finish in the Premier League.
