Football.London’s Alasdair Gold has offered an update on the injuries to Japhet Tanganga and Juan Foyth.
A few days before the restart of the campaign, The Telegraph confirmed that Tanganga had suffered a back stress fracture that would rule him out of action for a number of weeks.
The injury was a blow to Spurs considering that the youngster had become an important member of the Jose Mourinho’s defence before the suspension of the league.
Reports from Argentina revealed that Foyth had suffered a knee injury in training which could require surgery (TNT Sports), although Jose Mourinho has since played down fears that the former Estudiantes player will need to go under the knife (Football.London).
Gold has now hinted that perhaps neither injuries are as serious as initially feared.
The journalist suggested that the club remain hopeful that both Tanganga and Foyth will be back in action before the end of the season.
Gold said: “Spurs hope both will be back before the end of the season but much depends on how they react in their recovery.”

Losing Foyth is not a particularly big blow for us as I would have been extremely surprised if Mourinho used him when all our defenders are fit. However, Tanganga’s injury leaves us with a problem as there is now no obvious candidate to cover for Serge Aurier at right-back if the Ivorian needs a rest.
