Taricco is back!

Posted on 8 May 2001  - 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).

Mauricio Taricco will end eight months of injury hell on Tuesday evening.

Our Argentinian full-back has been pencilled in to start the reserve team match against Arsenal at Highbury.
The 28-year-old was initially laid low by groin problems last year hasn’t played since our 1-0 defeat at Charlton Athletic on September 16.

He explained: “The problem started with a hernia on my left side and I had operations on both sides just in case.

“It then went to my abductors and my backside was sore, even in bed, and the pain stayed there. I saw loads of people, specialists, consultants and had more surgery which didn’t really help.

“About a month ago I went to see an experienced doctor who lives in Italy at the moment and in two and a half weeks he’s treated my back and I feel very good. Hopefully the problems will now stay away.”

Reserve team boss Theo Foley revealed: “Mauricio will certainly start the game and we’ll go from there. It’s great to see him back. He’s a very good player and a smashing lad as well.”

Theo’s young, in-form reserve side chase a fourth-successive win in the FA Premier Reserve League at Arsenal.

The side includes a number of players who have featured in Premiership squads in recent weeks including Ciaran Toner, John Piercy, Dave McEwen, Matthew Etherington - all on the bench at Filbert Street on Saturday — Ian Hillier and Steven Ferguson.

Kick-off at Highbury is 6pm.

Starting line-up: Kelly, Consorti, Hillier, Toner, Taricco, McEwen, Piercy, Jackson, Etherington, Ferguson, Kamanan.
