Jamie targets Monday return

Posted on 21 January 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).

Jamie Redknapp has returned to training and is targeting a reserve team return against Portsmouth next Monday.

Absent from match action since September 20 with a knee problem that required minor surgery, Jamie reported that he was out on the training pitch on Monday with the players that weren't involved against Liverpool on Saturday and is now looking to take the next step on the comeback trail.

"It's going okay," said the captain. "I joined in with the lads on Monday for the first time, there was only a few of the guys in who played on Saturday, but it went okay.

"It was nice to be back training and, fingers crossed, I can stay fit now and be included in the plans for the rest of the season.

"It is a nightmare when you are injured all the time and I just want to get back out there as soon as I can," added Jamie, who joked that early evidence of the old midfield magic has yet to resurface.

"I was probably the worst player on the pitch! It was just nice to be back out there, to do a bit and get my feet moving again.

"Hopefully I will be okay for the reserve game next Monday against Portsmouth - that would be brilliant."

Meanwhile, David Pleat was quick to pay tribute to Jamie on Tuesday on his return to the training pitch.

"I am delighted to have Jamie Redknapp back this week. He is kicking a ball for the first time in ages and we had a short, sharp, very intense session this morning and he did splendidly considering what he has been through over the last few months."

Jamie talked about his return to training first to our mobile phone service spurs (((on!)))
