This afternoon, Sky Sports’ Football Daily posted training recordings, giving Tottenham supporters an unexpected and relatively under-the-radar update on Rodrigo Bentancur.
The international players were absent from their various responsibilities, so the videos concentrated on Heung-min Son training despite injury concerns and Brennan Johnson’s first outing with his teammates.
Rodrigo Bentancur, though, was participating in outside exercises for the first time since suffering an ACL injury against Leicester City back in February, as some keen-eyed Spurs supporters may have noted.
Bentancur is back out on the grass for the first time
Bentancur is keen to return to the field, but Ange Postecoglou recently stated that he is not anticipated to do so until November.
The Uruguayan seemed to have at least succeeded in persuading the medical staff to permit him to participate in some fundamental warm-up exercises with the rest of the Spurs team.
Spurs Web Opinion:
Spurs are significantly strengthened by having Bentancur in that three-man midfield to compete against Maddison, Sarr, and Bissouma. He can truly play any of the three positions, which is helpful for Postecoglou, in my opinion.
Rodrigo Bentancur injury latest as Tottenham star takes next step in return
odrigo Bentancur today came a step closer to his comeback by joining his Tottenham teammates in their pre-practice warm-up exercises.
The Uruguayan international hasn’t played since rupturing his knee’s anterior cruciate ligament in February, but manager Ange Postecoglou recently stated that he’s still on track to make a comeback in November.
Bentancur took part in a few warm-up drills on Thursday before returning to solo work. He has not yet resumed training with the Spurs, although he did so among players like Emerson Royal and Cristian Romero.
Romero’s participation is more good news for Postecoglou following a momentary scare during the break due to reports of an injury sustained in the 1-0 victory over Ecuador, in which the Argentina center-back was named player of the match.
Days later, Romero did, however, play the entire 90 minutes of a 3-0 victory away in Bolivia.
Heung-min Son, who was similarly concerned about his fitness after being seen with an ice pack strapped to his right knee while playing for South Korea, was also involved at Hotspur Way. The forward, though, played nearly the entire 1-0 victory over Saudi Arabia the next day.
On Saturday, Spurs take on Sheffield United in the Premier League in an effort to record their fourth straight victory.
