Steven Pienaar’s injury season has limped into summer with news that he faces groin surgery. The operation will not take place until the midfielder returns from international duty with South Africa and the player himself is quoted as saying:
“The injury has been giving me lots of problems over the last few months. I’ve decided to go for the operation after the international.”
It is anticipated that the operation will sort the problem that has dogged the player since he arrived from Everton in the January transfer window and Spurs fans would hope that they can finally see the best from their only major winter signing. However, others would possibly question the timing of the surgery and may have hoped that it were sorted sooner rather than later.
