Redknapp latest

Posted on 22 January 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).

Jamie Redknapp reports that he will hopefully be back in action in about three weeks time.

Jamie suffered a stress fracture of his toe in early December - a cruel blow for the midfielder who was making such a positive impact in a Spurs shirt.

He hopes to be back in training in the next ten days or so, which will be a welcome relief to the 29-year-old.

"It's coming on great actually," reported Jamie. "Obviously, when I first found out about the stress fracture it was a little bit disappointing.

"Now, it's been five weeks and I've come out of the after-cast, I should be back playing in hopefully about three weeks.

"Within the next ten days I should be back training with the lads, which is good. After the Villa game we haven't got a game for a bit so I shouldn't miss too many more."

Jamie admits that the setback was all the harder to take because he was so enjoying the start of his career at the Lane.

"It was a nightmare really because I was enjoying my football. It was just after the West Brom game when I realised I had the problem - I couldn't run in that game because it was killing me.

"I went and had a X-ray the next day and it showed that I had a stress fracture. There is absolutely nothing you can do about it other than immobilise it and rest.

"It feels a lot better now and I just want to get back as soon as possible."

The former Liverpool captain has endured a number of lengthy injury absences in the past, but says he did not get too down this time around as a clear recovery period was mapped out.

"I was doing a bit of gym work and the gaffer said to keep my head up. The thing is that it wasn't too long, if it had been like three or four months I would have been gutted but this was not too bad.

"I am feeling a lot better now I'm walking about."
