Toby Alderweireld has confirmed he is fully fit ahead of a tough run of matches for Tottenham.
Spurs face Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Juventus in February, so Alderweireld’s return from injury couldn’t have come at a better time.
“I feel good. I feel fit. I’m strong. I feel ready to give 100 per cent again, like I always do,” said Alderweireld. (Quotes via ESPN.)
“I worked very hard to come back to the training group as quickly as possible. Not one thing in my head is doubting about the injury.”
“Now it’s up to me to prove that I’m ready again to the manager. It’s always up to the manager [when I play]. I’m looking forward to give my all on the pitch.
“We can’t deny it’s going to be a very difficult and very important month. We have to just see, game by game, and fight to get three points in each match. Then we’ll see how far that brings us. But those are teams we have to beat, so why not?
“We’re going very well with Spurs in the last few seasons; getting top four every year and nearly winning the league. It’s up to us to have a better season in the Champions League too.”
The Belgian may play a part in the FA Cup against Newport County this weekend, although Mauricio Pochettino might not want to risk him.
