Freund out for season?
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).
Steffen Freund looks set to miss the rest of the season. <P class=MsoNormal>Our German midfield marauder damaged a knee ligament in training last Friday and will be out for four weeks. <P class=MsoNormal>That takes him into the last week of the season and it is unlikely he&rsquo;ll have enough time to be ready for the final match of the season at home against Manchester United on May 19. <P class=MsoNormal>Steffen explained: &ldquo;I had a scan on Monday and I think I have a small tear in the ligament inside the knee. There is a little blood or fluid in the knee and that gives you the answer that there is something wrong. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo;The ligament inside the knee is very important for stability and this is why the season would normally be finished. It takes time to recover. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo;The doctors have told me I will be out for four weeks and if that is the case I will be back the week before the end of the season. Perhaps that is too late. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo;I hope I have a happy ending but if not I hope I can get fit as quickly as possible.&rdquo; <P class=MsoNormal><I>Check out Steffen's weekly column by <A href="http://www.spurs.co.uk/freund/main.html">clicking here</A> <P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp;<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p> <P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp;<o:p></o:p></I>
