Tottenham Hotspur, who let go of Antonio Conte, are in crisis after losing even Emerson Royal to injury.
British football London announced on the 27th (Korean time) that “Tottenham right-back Emerson Royal will miss most of the rest of the season due to a knee injury.”
European football journalist Fabricio Romano also said, “Emersson will be out for at least six weeks due to a knee injury. He needs surgery,” adding, “Tottenham face another ordeal.”
Emerson, who was currently selected for the Brazilian national team, started in the national A-match friendly match against Morocco on the 26th.
Emerson, who played on the right flank for about 90 minutes, suffered a knee injury at the end of the game and was replaced by Artur Melo and left the field.
According to Football London, Emerson’s injured part is a knee meniscus and surgery is inevitable. As reported, if he misses six weeks, that means he won’t be seen until early May, when the season is nearly finished.
It can’t be the worst situation for Tottenham. Tottenham, who recently said goodbye to Antonio Conte due to repeated sluggishness, decided to spend the rest of the season under the interim manager Christian Stellini.
The problem is the players who have been loosened up due to injuries.
Currently, Tottenham are very short on full-back resources.
Sporting acquired Pedro Poro in the winter transfer window, but sent Jed Spence and Matt Doherty to Stade Rennes and Atletico Madrid respectively.
With Emerson injured here, the right full-back is left with only one prisoner.
Same goes for the left. Ben Davies is expected to miss at least 4 weeks and up to 6 weeks due to a hamstring injury, and Ryan Sessegnon is also almost recovered from the injury, but is not in normal physical condition. Only Ivan Perisic is in perfect condition. 안전놀이터
Tottenham are currently in fourth place, two points ahead of Newcastle United, who have played two games less. Depending on the outcome of the match, there is a risk of being overturned by Newcastle.
The only hope left for Tottenham, who have already been eliminated from the FA Cup, League Cup and UEFA Champions League, is to secure a ticket to the Champions League next season.
To this end, a great ordeal came to interim coach Stellini, who had to defend the top 4 spot in the league.
