Tottenham Suffer Bentacur Injury Blow
Tottenham have been dealt another injury blow after Rodrigo Bentacur was ruled out until the end of the season.
The Uruguayan star limped off against Leicester City after rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his left knee on Saturday after scoring Tottenham’s only goal of the encounter.
It is a major blow for Antonio Conte’s team after losing Hugo Lloris and Yves Bissouma to injuries.
“He will undergo surgery before beginning his rehabilitation with our medical staff,” Spurs said in a statement.
“We’re all behind you, Rodrigo.”
Tottenham will be in action against AC Milan in the Champions League on Tuesday.
The North Londoners are fifth on the Premier League log with 39 points from 23 games.
