Toby Alderweireld has insisted he and his Tottenham teammates are ready for the restart of the Premier League next week, according to talkSPORT.
Spurs restart their domestic campaign with a visit from Manchester United next Friday, with both sides setting their sights on a top-four finish.
Alderweireld, who extended his contract at Spurs until 2023 earlier in the season has said the North Lonones are ‘ready to compete’ when United arrive at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium next week (THFC).
“I think we have prepared ourselves in the best way possible,” said Alderweireld.
“We got the training we needed to keep our tone in the muscles. We had GPS for the running in the park – not easy running, tough running.
“So when we got back to training it was not like a holiday. And when we trained, we trained very hard. Sometimes it’s harder to train one-on-one then with the whole team. I think we are ready to compete,” he added.
Jose Mourinho has been boosted by the return of key players Harry Kane, Heung-min Son, Steven Bergwijn and Moussa Sissoko who were all out injured before the postponement of the season in March (Sky Sports).
Spurs currently sit in eighth place, three places behind United and seven points off Chelsea in fourth spot.
“Mentally and physically we had to be ready were absolutely ready at all time.
“The Premier League could have said that it could be two to three weeks but we knew we had to be ready.
“We just had to prepare ourselves physically and mentally for when the time was right to go back again,” Alderweireld added.
Spurs face West Ham at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium just four days after United visit next Friday.
