Toby Alderweireld has given Spurs a huge boost by insisting he is ready to go straight into the team and help the fight for a place in the Premier League’s top four.
An article by Sky Sports describes how Belgium international centre-back has been out since November with a hamstring injury,but he has now declared himself fit and could even return in the FA Cup fourth-round clash with Newport County this weekend ahead of a possible season defining run of games against Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal.
“I feel good. I feel fit. I’m strong. I feel ready to give 100 per cent again, like I always do,”:Alderweireld told Sky Sports News.
He added: “I worked very hard to come back to the training group as quickly as possible. Not one thing in my head is doubting about the injury.Now it’s up to me to prove that I’m ready again to the manager. It’s always up to the manager (if I play). I’m looking forward to give my all on the pitch.”
We sit two points behind fourth place and Alderweireld, who remains in talks over a new contract at the club, said: “We can’t deny it’s going to be a very difficult and very important month.
“We have to just see, game by game, and fight to get three points in each match. Then we’ll see how far that brings us. But those are teams we have to beat, so why not?
He added: “We’re going very well with Spurs in the last few seasons; getting top four every year and nearly winning the league. It’s up to us to have a better season in the Champions League too.”
So a big boost to see Toby return. The question is will he come straight back into the side and if so who drops out? Let us know your thoughts on who if any should make way for him
