On-loan Spurs star set for a spell on the sidelines through injury

Spanish publication Super Deporte has revealed that Juan Foyth has suffered a muscular injury and is expected to be out of action for a while for Villarreal.

Foyth, who struggled for opportunities last season after Jose Mourinho arrived in North London joined Unai Emery’s side on a season-long loan deal in the summer.

The defender has put in some decent performances for the Yellow Submarine this season and has proved his versatility by even impressing in a defensive midfield role.

However, he has not managed to cement his place as a regular starter for Villarreal as of yet and it has been suggested that the La Liga side are unlikely to activate the £13.6m option to buy the Argentine permanently at the end of the season.

Foyth’s challenge of breaking into Emery’s first eleven just got a lot harder with the defender facing a spell on the sidelined.

Super Deporte claim that the Tottenham man ended the last game with some muscular discomfort and medical tests have now confirmed that he suffered a myofascial tear in the adductor of his left leg during the 2-2 draw against Granada last Wednesday.

While no return date has been confirmed for Foyth as of yet, the report claims that he is expected to be sidelined for a minimum of two to three weeks.

With the lack of a proper pre-season and the compressed nature of the campaign, lots of players around Europe have been hit with muscle injuries. Spurs have been relatively lucky as we have not had too many major injuries so far. Hopefully, Foyth can return to action soon and stake his claim for a starting spot in Villarreal’s side during the business end of the season.
