Bad news are coming from Tottenham. Their medical crew had made today an announcement that everyone feared, after the injury of Van der Vaart in the match with Manchester City.

“An MRI confirmed that Rafael van der Vaart suffered a fracture in the ischio – ankle muscles on his right leg and will not be available approximately one month and a half.” is the verdict of the British doctors.
Van der Vaart was injured in the last minutes of the match with Manchester City on Sunday, a game that brought them a double loss now, after the 1-5 defeat .
The Dutchman will miss Tottenham’s next matches with Wolverhampton, Liverpool, Wigan and Arsenal in the championship and the team’s first meetings in the A Group from Europa League with PAOK Thessaloniki, Shamrock Rovers and Rubin Kazan.
Losing an important player could make the difference in the team’s future results. I don’t have to remember you that playing in Premier League is like a roadtrip to hell, because everyone is in the battle for points.
