Redknapp update

Posted on 13 November 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 hopes to be back out running on the training pitch in the next two weeks.

The club captain, missing since the Southampton game on September 20, has been suffering with knee injury and last week took the opportunity of a consultation with his specialist, Dr Richard Steadman, who was on a visit from America.

"It's not too bad," said Jamie. "Obviously the injury has lasted longer than I thought it would.

"I felt the knee earlier in the season and probably should have taken time off sooner, but I carried on playing and made it worse.

"It happens though and the good thing is that it's getting better. I was lucky last week because I had the opportunity to see the doctor who was over from America.

"He did my knee op and had a good look at things. He was confident and said just to let things settle down - which I have done. I now hope to push on and start running hopefully in the next week or so.

"I'll then take it from there. It has felt better as time has gone on.

"I've been doing bits and pieces because it is a gradual thing. It is frustrating because I can't just go out and join in again for the risk of setting myself back. It's difficult to deal with, but it is part of it.

"I'm hopeful now that it is improving and I can be back out on the pitch in a couple of weeks."
