Ziege jogging again

Posted on 17 February 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).

Christian Ziege is jogging again as he battles back from his horror thigh injury.

The German star needed emergency surgery after his thigh muscle blew up to twice its size - known as 'decompartmentalised' - after the Boxing Day clash against Charlton.

He needed two operations - the first released the pressure in the thigh and the second saw the surgeon stitch up what was a 10-inch incision.

The wing-back has been able to run twice a day and was back lapping the pitches at Spurs Lodge last week.

"It is going well," he reported. "I've had a lot of work to do and it's been quite hard, quite painful but the result is there.

"I can jog a little, kick a ball a little and I'm moving forward.

"The muscle is getting there, a little inside needs building up, but I'm quite happy.

"I'm jogging, doing my co-ordination work, some weights and having treatment and that's it at the moment. It's going well."
