Iversen eager to return

Posted on 14 March 2002  - 12:00

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).

Reports suggesting the end of Steffen Iversen's season appear to be greatly exaggerated.

The Norwegian striker suffered a groin problem just before our recent Premiership clash against Sunderland and before you knew it, reports had circulated that he was out for the season.

But the injury proved no more serious than a slight tear and Steffen, running again at the back end of last week, hopes to start full training again on Tuesday.

"It's fine," he reported on Monday. "It's been good for the past week and I'll probably train properly on Tuesday.

"I had a little tear in one of the muscles but it is only a tiny muscle so it hasn't affected me that much.

"I heard a click in my hip so I knew I'd pulled something but thankfully it wasn't too serious."

Injuries have again been the bane of Steffen's season.

He's been hampered by a serious leg problem that ruled him out from September to January, a virus over the Christmas and New Year period and now a spot of groin trouble.

When he's been fully fit he's been a hit in front of goal - bagging three goals in five starts in January and February.

He explained: "For me it's all about getting back into the team and playing again as soon as possible, staying fit and being involved in the last 10 games.

"It's gone well when I've been fit. I had six, seven games in a row and everything went well and then, as always, I got another injury which meant I had to stop for a couple of weeks.

"That was frustrating but all I can do is look forward."
