Etienne Capoue returns to Spurs training

We've got some excellent news on the injury front.

After missing nearly two months with an injury, Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Etienne Capoue returned to training on Tuesday. Capoue hurt his ankle against Norwich City back in February, but is now fit enough to take part in training sessions and could appear before the season ends.

The official team site had word of his return, with some quotes from Tim Sherwood.

"It's great to see him back in training but he has been out for two months, so we have to be careful. We'll continue to monitor him closely."

Of course, Timmy's not exactly the biggest fan of defensive midfielders anyway. He's said Sandro isn't good enough to play for him at the moment and thinks that playing Nacer Chadli in a two-man center is perfectly acceptable. So even if Capoue makes excellent progress and gets fully fit, we might not actually get to see him.

Hopefully I'm wrong and he gets a run-out or two, along with Sandro and all the kiddies. Let's not waste these meaningless games by playing players that we know are both fit and very good. It's experimentation time, Tim.
