Aaron Lennon returned to first team training yesterday for the first time since picking up a foot injury against Crystal Palace on the opening day of the season. Aaron gets plenty of criticism for the delivery of his final ball but many Spurs fans will be pleased at the news, and they’ve been joined by the head coach Andre Villas-Boas.
“I’m extremely happy,” AVB is quoted as saying on the club’s official website.
“It’s been a long time out for a player of Aaron’s importance and the team is delighted with his return.
“He’s proved year after year how important he is for us and to have him back is a major plus.”
Andre was then asked if the winger would be available for the Aston Villa game on 20th October.
“Let’s see how he works on the international break,” he added.
“Azza has kept his fitness very high with our medical department.”
It’s a crowded midfield at White Hart Lane but AVB’s comments suggest that he will put the right winger straight back into the side if he is 100%. Does he deserve an immediate starting slot and will his return answer some of our issues going forward?
