Tom Huddlestone has recovered from his ankle injury
Tottenham star Tom Huddlestone has lifted the lid on his injury nightmare that ruined last season for him.
The 25-year-old only made two Premier League appearances last season, with two more coming in the Europa League before an ankle injury struck that kept him out for the rest of the campaign.
“Last season was so frustrating,” said Huddlestone. “I made four appearances at the start but then I picked up the ankle problem which persisted for months. It was particularly hard when I was two or three weeks away from returning and then I discovered I needed another operation that ruled me out for the season.
“That was a big setback but once I knew I would not play again, I could concentrate solely on getting ready for this pre-season.
“I’ve had no problems with the ankle since. It’ll be something I’ll always have, I just have to learn how to manage it. I’ll have to take it day by day, but I don’t think it will be a case of missing matches because the games are far enough apart.”
