Stalwart steps up recovery from injury lay-off
Seeing Toby Alderwiereld limp off in their famous win against the Los Blancos must have been a sore sight for the Spurs fans.
It was compounded by their wretched league form since, dropping to 7th in the league table. Their walloping at the hands of Manchester City highlighted the porous Spurs rearguard with Mauricio Pochettino left with only Jan Vertonghen to call upon as a recognised centre-half.
So it was no surprise that Spurs fans worldwide took a sigh of relief as news dropped that the Belgian was back training outdoors.
The official Tottenham Hotspur Twitter account posted about the Belgian’s progress as the defender was spotted attending light training sessions.
Their title charge seems to have taken a hit but the Lilywhites faithful will be hoping that Alderwiereld’s return coincides with a return to Champions League spots.
