With all the injuries around Spurs at the moment you could have been forgiven for thinking that new signing Bongani Khumalo would have made his debut in a Lilywhite shirt by now. However, it seems Harry Redknapp believes the South African needs more time before he is ready for his first team bow.
Khumalo was on the bench for the Blackburn game, but then so were two goalkeepers. Redknapp says: “He is fit to play. I think the Premier League is better than the South African league, he has to get used to the Premier League so let’s hope he does. It isn’t a case of adapting, it’s a case of whether you’re good enough.”
Had it not been for the rush of injuries, Redknapp revealed that Bongani might have been getting some experience elsewhere.
“We were going to loan him out to a Championship team and that would have been good for him, but he is now in my squad because of players being injured.”
Khumalo is in the South Africa squad for their upcoming match against Kenya, but it seems his Tottenham debut may be some way off.
