Tottenham defender Japhet Tanganga was ended up in his back with a stress fracture. The 21-year-old has already identified himself as the first-team squad’s main figure, and Michael Brown says that his latest injury is a concern. Brown has urged Spurs to pay special attention to his rehab.
It’ll be interesting to see if this season’s Tanganga back to action again. Ideally, Spurs will look for the next season to get him fit and ready. Next year, Tanganga might be a crucial part of Mourinho’s defense. With Vertonghen leaving, he’ll hopefully get more chances of showcasing his talent.
He said: “It is the kind of injury that makes me worry, you know? If you have an injury to the effect – you break your hip, you snap your knee – but you have to be a bit more careful about a stress fracture. Here they have a fantastic physio, Geoff Scott, who looks after him, he was there when I was there, and they got amazing treatment at Spurs down there. I’m sure they’re going to give him the best. Hopefully, we’ll be able to see him soon because he’s an exciting prospect, as you say.”
Tottenham fans will hope that the young defender can quickly recover from his injury and help them secure this season’s European football.
The Londoners may not be in the Champions League next year but they have a great chance of winning Europa League qualification. Spurs are seventh in the league table, six points behind Chelsea. The Blues are holding the fourth and final Champions League spot for now.
