Spurs Confirm Huge Eriksen Injury Boost

By on November 19, 2013


Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed a huge injury boost this afternoon with the news that playmaker Christian Eriksen has NOT ruptured his ankle ligaments.

The 21-year-old was forced off while playing for Denmark in a friendly against Norway on Friday night with what appeared to be a serious ankle injury.

It was initially thought that Eriksen would miss around two months but reports in newspapers this morning suggested that the player had ruptured his ankle ligaments and would be on the sidelines for nearer three months.

However, Tottenham have released a statement this afternoon confirming that an MRI scan has revealed that the former Ajax man has suffered only a sprain of his ligament, and there is therefore no rupture, meaning he won’t be out for as long as first feared.

The statement on TottenhamHotspur.com read:

Following an MRI scan on Monday it has been determined that Christian Eriksen suffered a sprain of the lateral ankle ligaments playing for Denmark against Norway on Friday.

The scan showed no sign of ruptured ligaments which will result in a shorter period of recovery for the attacking midfielder.

The news will be a welcome relief to boss Andre Villas-Boas as he will need all his creative players available as he looks to get his goal-shy team firing this season.
