Defoe suffers ankle injury in Dubai


Jermain Defoe

Tottenham Hotspur striker Jermain Defoe has suffered an ankle injury during the training camp in Dubai.

Defoe broke down during a session in Al Ahli’s Rashid Stadium where Spurs were training as part of their five-day break between matches.

“Defoe has an injury again. He’s had a problem with his ankle before and it didn’t feel too good,” Redknapp said in Dubai-based newspaper The National.

“We’re trying to finish in the top four and it’s so close. But we’ve got so many players injured, people forget.

“We’ve got Tom Huddlestone, Younes Kaboul, Ledley King, [Jonathan] Woodgate, [Gareth] Bale, [Rafael] Van der Vaart.

“If you could pick a team of injured players it would be a fantastic team.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. For those whom maybe interested, the cowards at the premiere league has decided not to take any action against rooney and his blatant elbow in the face of the wigan player. SUPRISE SUPRISE

  2. Rooney is a scumbag, people forget so quickly how much of a disgrace he was at the world cup and his outburst at the fans paying thousands to travel and support them in south africa. A few goals and the papers and united fans are sucking his cock again. He is a disgrace and probably the most over-rated player in the premier league.
