Harry Redknapp would prefer that Jermain Defoe still has his groin operation.
The Spurs striker has been booked in for surgery on Tuesday, but Defoe has apparently now stated that he feels fine after scoring in Tottenham’s 4-0 win against Young Boys last night.
Redknapp said: “Now he is saying he might not need it.
“We are in the hands of the medical people, but he said he did not feel anything tonight.
“I would rather he get it done, I don’t want it dragging on all year for him, there is a fortnight [international] break coming up and he could be fit in three weeks if he has it done on Tuesday, so it may be better to get it done. We will have to wait and see.”
