Rodrigo Bentancur. Bentancur is back. ‘Team Talk’ reported on February 15 (KST) that ‘Bentancur’s recovery is progressing well, and he could return as early as next month’.
Bentancur scored the opening goal against Leicester City in a 1-4 defeat on Feb. 11. However, he injured his knee and was substituted in the second 20 minutes.
He was seen leaving the field on crutches after complaining of excruciating pain.
Bentancur went under the knife with a torn anterior cruciate ligament.
It’s a shame, because he was in the midst of his best form last season. He scored five goals in 18 games.
After Bentancur’s injury, Tottenham’s midfield collapsed. 바카라사이트
Antonio Conte was relieved of his duties in March, and Spurs finished eighth last season.
Eight months on, he’s in the final stages of rehabilitation training to make a comeback.
“This is great news,” Aston Villa legend Gabriel Agbonlahor told Football Insider of Bentakur’s return.
“He’s another option for manager Enze Postecoglou.
“I watched Bentancur last season and thought, ‘This guy has everything,'” he said.
“Bentancur can play anywhere in the midfield.
He can play deep in defense, he can play up front, he can play in attack.”
Tottenham’s midfield has changed this season.
Postecoglou has deployed a trio of James Maddison, Ivor Bissouma, and Pape Sarr.
It has worked. With 20 points (6 wins, 2 draws), Tottenham is a surprise leader in the English Premier League (EPL) for the 2023-2024 season.
They don’t have a single loss.
When Bentancur returns, the midfield will undergo another change.
“Postecoglou has given Sarr that role,” Agbonlahor said.
I think when Bentancur comes back, he will play in place of Sarr.
Then we will have a midfield of Bissouma, Bentancur and Maddison. It’s scary.”
