Kanoute update

Posted on 20 October 2003  - 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).

David Pleat reports that it is unlikely Fredi Kanoute has suffered a fracture and that scans will determine the extent of any potential ankle ligament damage.

The French striker - stretchered off in the final minutes of the 2-1 win over Leicester on Sunday after a heavy challenge on his ankle - had an initial X-ray and this afternoon went for scans for a more detailed analysis.

David explained that he is not yet in a position to relay the full extent of the injury, but does not suspect a fracture at this stage.

"Not fully, we don't think there is anything broken though," said David. "He is having scans done as I speak and we'll have a good idea very soon of how long he is going to be out for.

"It is quite painful for him."
