Jacques on Keane KO

Posted on 29 July 2004  - 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).

Jacques Santini faces an anxious few hours as he waits for the diagnosis of Robbie Keane's ankle injury.

Our new Head Coach confirmed that the Irish striker damaged his right ankle in Wednesday night's friendly against Rangers.

Robbie immediately signalled to the bench after Marvin Andrews block-tackled his attempted shot in the 28th minute of our 2-0 defeat at Ibrox. He was stretchered off with a stabilising brace strapped to his right leg.

Jacques, facing the press minutes after the final whistle, said that early indications suggested a ligament problem.

"I've just seen the physio and he thinks it is a ligament problem," said a naturally disappointed Jacques.

"We return to London tonight and will see what the doctors have to say.

"We need Robbie for the first match against Liverpool but now, I'm not so sure."

We'll bring you more details on Robbie's injury as soon as we can...
