Teddy misses out

Posted on 18 August 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).

Teddy Sheringham will not lead us out against Aston Villa in Saturday's Premiership opener.

The striker has not recovered fully from an Achilles problem and has not been named in Glenn Hoddle's squad for the big kick-off.

Better news sees Darren Anderton included, he had also been suffering Achilles problems while Ledley King has recovered from a twisted ankle he sustained in last weekend's friendly against AEK Athens.

As predicted, Stephen Carr (knee), Tim Sherwood and Oyvind Leonhardsen (both ankle) are all missing.

Squad: Sullivan, Doherty, Bunjevcevic, King, Ziege, Taricco, Freund, Clemence, Poyet, Ferdinand, Rebrov, Keller, Perry, Davies, Anderton, Iversen, Piercy, Thelwell.
