Recently Tottenham defender Japhet Tanganga took up a stress fracture in his back.
The 21-year-old has already stabilized himself as an important member of the first-team squad and Michael Brown declares his recent injury is a problem.
Brown has motivated Tottenham to be extremely careful about his healing.
It’ll be fascinating to see if Tanganga regains to action this season again. Ideally, Spurs should prepare him for the next season to get him fit and ready.
With Vertonghen leaving, Tanganga could be a valuable part of next year’s defense of Mourinho. He’ll likely get more chances to showcase his talent.
Brown applauded the kid as a sensational prospect and he contended that he could play multiple roles as well.
Speaking to Football Insider, the former Tottenham man said: “He’s a man of many positions, we’ve talked about the benefits of being able to play different positions as a young player, none more so than him.
“It’s the type of injury that worries me, you know? When you get an impact injury – you roll your ankle, you twist your knee – but a stress fracture you’ve got to be a little bit more careful.
“They’ve got a great physio there, Geoff Scott, who looks after him, he was there when I was there and they’ve got unbelievable care down at Spurs. I’m sure they’ll be giving him the best.
“Hopefully we can see him soon because, as you say, he’s a really exciting prospect.”
Tottenham fans will expect the young defender to recover from his injury soon and help them secure European football this season.
The Londoners may not be in following year’s Champions League but they have a big chance of securing qualification for the Europa League.
presently, Spurs are seventh, six points behind Chelsea in the league table. For now, the Blues occupy the fourth and final spot in the Champions League.
