Kneesy does it

Posted on 29 June 2005  - 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).

Paul Robinson is pleased to report good progress on his knee injury. England’s number one suffered ligament damage in his right knee after a 50-50 challenge with Aston Villa’s Darius Vassell on May 1.


The injury ruled him out of the last two games of the season — ending his hopes of an ever-present season in the Premier League — our brief end of season tour of Mauritius and England’s friendlies in the USA.


"It's coming along well and I'm where I should be at this stage," said Robbo, who broke off his holiday for a week's treatment at Spurs Lodge earlier in the month.


"Obviously, anyone who knows me will know I'd rather be be ahead of schedule but it was quite a bad injury and I have to be patient.


"The brace has been off for a while, I'm walking comfortably and I've been doing plenty of strengthening work.


"I hope to be running soon and with pre-season just around the corner, there won't be a shortage of that when I'm ready! Overall it's coming along well and I'm very happy with it."


Robbo revealed that limping off against Villa was a career first. “I’ve never had an injury keep me out of a football match.


“I was only telling Hans (Segers) the other week that I once had an operation on my finger at Leeds but I was on the bench at the time. As long as I could have stood up I wouldn’t have come off the pitch but I was struggling to do that. It was so frustrating.”
