Tottenham learn when Rodrigo Bentancur is expected to return from injury

Rodrigo Bentancur is set to miss several months with an ACL injury...

Tottenham Hotspur were dealt the devastating blow of losing Rodrigo Bentancur to an ACL injury.

The midfielder sustained the injury in Spurs’ 4-1 thrashing at Leicester City two weeks ago.

Today, the north London club have discovered the full extent of the Uruguayan’s injury.

Bentancur back in November

Rodrigo Bentancur is expected back in November at the earliest, according to Sky Sports News.

The 25-year-old has successfully undergone surgery on his knee.

The long road to full fitness now begins for him as he aims to return at some stage next season.

According to Dr. Rajpal Brar: “Typically looking at 7-9 month return timeline for elite footballers & return to pre-injury levels around 18-24 months.”

Tottenham have plenty of strong midfield options in Hojbjerg and Bissouma, whilst Skipp and Sarr have shown much promise.

But this season, Bentancur has been one of Spurs’ top performers and regardless of replacements, his absence is huge.
