The injury news continues to be positive for Spurs as several first team players look set to return to action and the first man back could be Scott Parker. The England international has yet to feature this season after an Achilles problem and although head coach Andre Villas-Boas suggested that he won’t be rushed back, Scott’s importance to the squad was made clear.
“We have players coming back to fitness and Scott can be so important for us. He was player of the season last year and we expect him to be one of our main strengths,” AVB said.
“He hasn’t lost his abilities. Now we have resumed light training with him, he has been absolutely amazing.”
Those comments would tend to rule out a sale in January with QPR and Harry rumoured to be hovering. However, does Scott stand a chance or displacing Sandro on the right centre and if not, where does he actually play?
This time last season Scott Parker was winning player of the month awards on a regular basis but as his return to fitness draws near, where does he slot in to this Tottenham side?
