“We pulled him out” – Manager confirms ‘dejected’ midfielder was pulled out of training yesterday

Ange Postecoglou, the manager of Tottenham Hotspur, asserted that midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur is eager to rejoin the team.

Yesterday, the team received a significant injury boost when Bentancur was spotted warming up before practice.

Since rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament against Leicester City in February, the Uruguayan international has been out from competition.

Before his terrible accident, he was arguably one of Tottenham’s greatest players from the previous season, if not the best.

The midfielder has been putting in a lot of effort in the background to heal from the wound.

He made a progress in his recovery by warming up with the Tottenham players on Thursday before the training session.

He took the next step in his rehab as he joined the Tottenham players in the warm up ahead of the training session on Thursday.

And Ange Postecoglou was asked how important it was for the player to get a warm-up session with the boys.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, earlier today, he said (via Football London):

“It is. A couple of weeks ago he came barging into my room wanting to start in the team.”

” Rehab — talk to any player — that’s a tough thing. It’s not that you have to do the work.”

” It’s the solitary element of it, where you’re not with the group. Just having him do the warm-ups and him being involved, he was buzzing yesterday.”

“Then he was fairly dejected when we pulled him out after the warm-up. It’s good. It’s fair to say, he’s still got a fair bit of work to do.”

“But great to have him involved, and I guess that just encourages him a bit more. It’s great to see.”


Although he won’t be here until the beginning of November, his homecoming would provide us a huge lift.

Yves Bissouma and Pape Matar Sarr are currently Ange’s go-to pair, and Sarr has performed admirably thus far.

Bentancur, Bissouma, and James Maddison, though, have the potential to develop into one of the league’s top midfields.
