Defoe injury blow for Tottenham

Defoe injury blow for Tottenham

Tottenham striker Jermaine Defoe is ruled out of another three matches after suffering a setback to his muscle injury.

The 30-year-old has only recently returned after a long-term absence due to injury and it seems he will be forced to miss both legs of Europa League last-8 tie against Basel.

Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas said he the player will definitely miss the first leg to be played at the White Hart Lane and remains a major doubt for the second leg in Switzerland. He said: “Jermain has a muscle injury which is probably going to take him out of the next two games definitely and maybe Basel away. If he can’t make Basel away he should be fit for Man City. It’s a big blow. It’s on the same muscle that he had a small tear last month. It’s on the other side now and it’s a big miss as he represents a lot for us and he will be a big miss.”
