Tottenham manager Antonio Conte has shared a four-word injury update on winger Lucas Moura, in a worry for the Lilywhites.
The Lowdown: Lucas’ injury woes…
As he seeks to build upon his team’s top-four finish last season, Conte needs every option available given the wealth of talent at the disposal of Tottenham’s rivals.
The Latest: Conte shares four-word injury update…
Speaking to BT Sport on Saturday (via Spurs Web), the manager has now shared a four-word update on Lucas’ current condition.
He says that there is a worry surrounding the 30-year-old, who is apparently failing to recover properly, with no timeframe given on a potential return before the World Cup in Qatar next month.
When asked about the South American, Conte succinctly stated: ‘He is not recovering.’
The Verdict: Setback for Spurs…
The forward can be an exciting option to call upon when available, so Spurs supporters could be gutted over this latest news.
As per WhoScored, Lucas averaged Tottenham’s highest rate of successful take-ons per 90 over the 2021/22 campaign with 1.6, which shows his massive ability when fit and firing.
The very concerning aspect of this update is having no discernible estimation as to when he could return to the fold for Tottenham.
Fixtures are coming around very quickly in the build-up to the World Cup in seven weeks’ time, and as a result, injuries could quite possibly mount over the course of the congested calendar.
