Toby Alderweireld update

Following the 0-0 draw at Bayer Leverkusen on Tuesday nigh tin the Champions League, Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino was asked about the well-being of centre-half Toby Alderweireld.

Alderweireld looked like he suffered a terrible injury last weekend in the Premier League against West Brom, when he fell awkwardly on his knee, and the Belgian needed a stretcher to exit the pitch.

But since the initial injury, the news around Alderweireld has been getting better.

On Sunday, Alderweireld was spotted on social media hanging out with several of his Spurs buddies as they played Call of Duty. Alderweireld was spotted without a knee brace or any other noticeable support.

In the meantime, Spurs have refused to give a concrete timetable on when they hope to have the defender back in action, but the general feeling is on the up.

Pochettino: ‘No major problems’

In a short but significant update, Pochettino told the press Alderweireld’s leg is “still painful” but the player has “no major problems”.

Alderweireld is unlikely to feature in the Premier League match away at Bournemouth on Saturday, but he could be available for the following league game against Leicester.

The Belgium press have suggested that Alderweireld is out for “several weeks”.
