Ange Postecoglou reveals they had to pull Rodrigo Bentancur out of Tottenham training yesterday
Tottenham Hotspur midfielder, Rodrigo Bentancur, is inching closer to rejoining the squad after a prolonged absence due to injury and manager Ange Postecoglou’s latest revelation has sent ripples of excitement through the Spurs faithful.
Bentancur’s journey to recovery has been nothing short of inspirational. The midfielder suffered a heartbreaking setback when he ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament during a clash against Leicester City back in February.
It was a cruel twist of fate for a player who had been, without a doubt, one of Tottenham’s standout performers during the previous season. His skill, composure, and influence on the pitch left fans yearning for his swift return.

Behind the scenes, Rodrigo Bentancur has been relentless in his pursuit of healing and redemption. The arduous path of rehabilitation, a solitary and gruelling process, is a test of not just physical strength but also mental fortitude.
An encouraging sign emerged recently when Bentancur was spotted participating in the pre-training warm-up alongside his teammates. For those who have closely followed his journey, this was a heartwarming moment, underscoring the strides he has made in his rehabilitation.
Manager Ange Postecoglou couldn’t hide his excitement when discussing the significance of Bentancur’s involvement in the warm-up. During a recent press conference via football.london, he revealed
“A couple of weeks ago he came barging into my room wanting to start in the team. Rehab—talk to any player—that’s a tough thing. It’s not just about doing the work; it’s the solitary element of it, where you’re not with the group.”

It’s a sentiment that resonates with anyone who has undergone a gruelling recovery process. The camaraderie and the sense of belonging that come with being part of a team are often missed dearly during such times.
However, as Postecoglou pointed out, there’s still work to be done. The road to full recovery is a marathon, not a sprint, and Bentancur understands this all too well. It’s only a matter of time before he comes back.
