Tottenham Hotspur midfielder, Dele Ali back in training
Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that midfielder Dele Alli has returned to training following a six-week spell on the sidelines.
The 22-year-old has been out since damaging his hamstring in Tottenham’s 2-1 win over Fulham on January 20.
Dele is not in contention for the second leg of Spurs’ Champions League last-16 second leg against Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday, but he could make his comeback away to Southampton next weekend.
“I think Dele is close, we will see if it is possible for him to be involved on Saturday against Southampton,” Pochettino said at his pre-match press conference.
Pochettino also confirmed that right-back Kieran Trippier, who started against Chelsea and Arsenal, has not travelled to Germany with the squad due to fatigue and a “small problem”.
