The 2015-2016 season is going to be one to forget for Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Nabil Bentaleb. The Algerian was injured early on in the campaign and never seemed to recover from his lost time, finding himself either out of the squad or playing with the U-21s. Not long ago, the club reported that both Bentaleb and Cameron Carter-Vickers were out for the season with undisclosed injuries. Today, the club at least shed some light on what's going on with Bentaleb.
The expected recovery and rehabilitation is likely to see him return to training in approximately six weeks.— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) March 22, 2016
The good news is that, with the recovery time only being six weeks, the injury itself was not major. This rules out the possibility of any major ligament being severely damaged.
The injury is not going to help Bentaleb in any way. He had been spending his time playing with the U-21s to get some game time. Unfortunately, this will derail his season and whatever he could do to get a jump start on contributing to the senior squad either at the end of the season or going into next season.
Here's to a speedy recovery and hopes that he comes back stronger than ever for next season.
