Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to react to the club’s announcement regarding Juan Foyth’s injury.
The 21-year-old injured the lateral ligament in his left ankle during the Audi Cup final victory against Bayern Munich .
After being stretchered from the pitch, it has now been confirmed that he will be ruled out of action until next month when he is expected to return to training.
Spurs are currently short of options at right-back with Kyle Walker-Peters the only player familiar with the position who is fit and has featured in pre-season.
Serge Aurier’s recent hand surgery saw him not feature against Inter Milan on Sunday and with Kieran Tripper now playing his football at Atletico Madrid, Walker-Peters is likely to line up on the right side of the defence against Aston Villa this weekend.
Some fans have called on the club to sign a new right-back, while others are relieved that Foyth is hopefully back in action during some part of September.
Ohhh yeeees I thought it would be much worse

Could have been worse news. But our depth takes a huge hit with this

Far better need than I expected. Thought his Achilles popped watching it live. Bullet dodged (partially at least)

Time to go on his honeymoon

Not as bad as I thought, really. He was already banned for two games. Back in training in September, hopefully the early part. Should be back on the pitch by October if all goes well.

I know, but still don’t think he’s good enough to play there all season, still believe we need a RB
