Tottenham are struggling with injuries. Leading midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur suffered a much bigger knee injury last game than expected.
Tottenham suffered a 1-4 defeat in the 23rd round of the Premier League in the 2022-2023 season against Leicester held at the King Power Stadium in Leicester, England at 12:00 am (Korean time) on the 12th. Bentacourt took the lead on the day, but after conceding three goals in the first half, he allowed a key goal in the second half and collapsed.
In addition to the defeat, Tottenham also suffered from injuries. In the 15th minute of the second half, Bentancur grabbed his knee and collapsed during a ball contest with an opponent. After his teammates checked his condition, he signaled for a replacement on the bench, and after a medical staff was put in, he was replaced by Pape Matar Sar and left the field. At the time, a stretcher was put in, but Bentancur stood up and walked slowly with medical staff.
However, it seems that Bentancur’s injury will be bigger than expected. Although the official physical condition has not been confirmed yet, Chilean football journalist Eduardo Haeng quoted a report by reporter Buisan of Uruguayan sports radio ‘Sport 890’ through his personal channel and said, “Bentancur’s cruciate ligaments are torn. He is likely to be away for more than six months.”
Bentancur’s absence is painful news for Tottenham. Bentancur left Juventus last winter to join Tottenham and immediately emerged as a key player. He showed a good performance by showing good coordination with Pierre Emile Hoivier. 바카라사이트
However, an injury at a crucial moment for the team this season got in the way. At the beginning of the season, he missed two games due to a head collision, and after the World Cup, he was unable to play for about a month due to an adductor muscle injury. After returning in the middle of last month, he gradually improved his performance, but due to an injury in the last game, he had to leave again and there is a possibility that he will not be able to see him in the stadium for a long time.
Moreover, during the coming week, Tottenham will play Serie A’defending champion’ AC Milan in the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League. On this day, with Hoivier confirmed to be absent due to cumulative warnings, Bentancur is also likely to be unable to appear due to injury. As a result, Tottenham and manager Antonio Conte only sighed deeply over the future schedule.
Meanwhile, Tottenham is in a situation where, in addition to Bentancur, goalkeeper Hugo Lloris and Eve Bisuma are unable to step out due to injury.
