Updates on Foyth & Alli

After the game, Mauricio Pochettino gave injury updates on both Juan Foyth and Dele Alli.

Dele Alli missed the Inter clash with a hamstring problem, with Pochettino having stated that he does not believe that the midfielder will be fit for the start of the season.

The Spurs boss went on to state that Foyth is likely to be out for ‘many weeks’:

“I don’t know if the club communicate the time but I don’t believe he’s going to be ready for the start of the season. It’s the same area. Yes, of course we are worried. He’s still so young.

“Just 23-years-old and many, many hamstring problems in the last few years. It’s to pay attention to what is going on in his body, but we are here to try to help him.

“Think minor injury. Only a few weeks before he can be available again and be with the group.

“With Juan I think the medical staff are going to update in the next few days. I cannot say more because I don’t know exactly how much time. For sure it’s a tough injury and for sure it is many weeks he is going to be out.” As quoted by
