Scott Parker looks likely to miss the beginning of the Premier League season
Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas has confirmed that Scott Parker could miss the start of the season due to injury.
The talismanic former Charlton, Chelsea and West Ham midfielder, who has 17 England caps, has been struggling with an achilles tendon injury and could require surgery.
He has missed Spurs’ pre-season USA tour to be assessed by the club’s medical staff.
“There might be a small tear on his Achilles,” said Villas-Boas.
“We are at the moment evaluating the situation regarding a possible operation that can take four to six weeks normally to heal.”
