Manager reveals why on-loan Tottenham player has returned to his parent club

Tottenham Hotspur have a number of bright young talents out on loan this season, from Jack Clarke at Leeds United to Jack Roles at Cambridge United.

However, it has now been revealed that Kazaiah Sterling, who is on loan to Doncaster Rovers for the season, has returned to his parent club Spurs.

This comes after the young striker picked up an injury, which has been labelled as a dead leg and has kept the player out for five weeks so far.

This is unfortunate for Sterling as he made a bright start to his career under Doncaster gaffer Darren Moore.

Sterling has only played two matches for the senior Tottenham team, which came between 2017 and 2019. Sterling first came on in the 88th minute in the Champions League against Apoel Nicosia, before playing in the FA Cup the next season (Wikipedia).

Darren Moore has now revealed that Sterling has returned to Spurs in order to get better treatment on the injury, but the two clubs are working closely together on getting Kaz back fit.

He said (Doncaster Free Press): “We’re working together with Spurs. Since he got the injury he’s been away and we’ve nurtured him back, we’ve given him the treatment, he’s returned back to his parent club and he’s had a couple of scans.

“If it meant him going back to Spurs because it speeds up the recovery process and because of the manpower they’ve got there and the equipment then great stuff.

“But he’s nearly there. We’ve just got to make sure that we take every precaution and make sure when he comes back he stays back.

“He’s such an electrifying player that the last thing we want is for him to explode into a burst of speed and for something untoward to happen.

“It’s been a really difficult one because when you think what we could do with his ability it would be wonderful.”

Spurs Web Opinion: With the likes of Parrott coming through, Sterling really does need a good season under his belt to force his way into Pochettino’s plans.
