Victor Wanyama has returned to Tottenham having played only one of Kenya’s two fixtures during the current international break.

Football Kenya Federation Communication Officer Barry Otieno told Goal: “He jetted back to England after the match against Comoros. His club Spurs requested that he play one match because of his troublesome knee.

“It was just a precaution considering the fact that the EPL is in its crucial stage, and the player’s services are needed.”

Wanyama injured his knee in pre-season but returned to the Tottenham first-team in August.

However, it was clearly too early for the midfielder who went on to miss a further four months of action because of his knee.

The 26-year-old made yet another comeback earlier this year, scoring a stunning goal against Liverpool at Anfield, and has settled into the team gradually ever since.

Spurs allowed Wanyama join up with Kenya for the current international break – he scored a penalty as he captained Harambee Stars to a 2-2 draw with Comoros.

But Wanyama played no part in Tuesday’s friendly against the Central African Republic with his club and country clearly still concerned about his knee. Kenya lost 3-2.

Hopefully Wanyama is over the worst of his injuries and can get back to playing regularly for Tottenham and Kenya soon.
