Atouba update

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Physio Dean Kenneally reports that Thimothee Atouba has a knee ligament injury and we'll know more from the results of scans taken this morning later in the week.

The midfielder had to be stretchered off after 79 minutes of our defeat at Portsmouth last night.

"Atouba took a ligament injury on the inside of his knee," reported Dean at Spurs Lodge this afternoon. "He went for a scan this morning and we'll be able to assess the full extent of it in a couple of days.

"When someone gets a knock like that there are often two or three structures that can be a bit sore and tender and it often takes a couple of days to assess it fully."
