Alejo Veliz of Tottenham Hotspur responds to an injury


Alejo Veliz, a striker for Tottenham Hotspur, is anticipated to miss several months due to a knee injury, the management of the team announced on Thursday. Veliz is one of ten Spurs players who are scheduled to miss this Friday’s FA Cup third-round encounter.


On New Year’s Eve, following the Premier League home victory against Bournemouth, the 20-year-old Argentine had assistance leaving the pitch. Postecoglou stated, “Unfortunately, it was a fairly significant injury.” “After the game, he got scans, and the results will likely keep him out for a few months. Media reports quoted the gaffer as stating, “Won’t need surgery but some significant ligament damage, so disappointing for him because he’s kind of worked hard to get an opportunity in the last couple of weeks.”


Postecoglou did, however, note that Dutch defender Micky van de Ven was getting close to recovering from the hamstring injury he sustained in their November 4-1 Premier League loss to Chelsea. “This week, Micky has been training,” the Australian stated. “About Friday’s match, I’m not sure; he might be on the team. Although it’s nice to have him back, we will need to exercise caution around him because he has clearly missed a lot.”


Heung-Min Son of Tottenham, the captain of South Korea, and Pape Matar Sarr, the midfielder for Senegal, will be among the important players absent from Friday’s FA Cup third-round match at home against Burnley since they are playing for their countries in the Asian Cup and Africa Cup of Nations, respectively.


Although fifth-place Spurs are six points behind leaders Liverpool in the fierce Premier League title race, the manager insisted the FA Cup is more important than the Premier League.”
