Rodrigo Bentancur, who reportedly tore his anterior cruciate ligament against Leicester, will be out of action for Tottenham for at least six months.
Rodrigo Bentancur, who scored the game’s first goal as Tottenham lost 4-1, was allowed to leave the field, but he did so with his head in his hands when he realized the extent of the harm.
The Evening Standard have reported that Bentancur is now set to be out until August at the earliest – bringing his 2022-23 season to a premature end.
Things are going from bad to worse for Tottenham boss Antonio Conte on the injury front, with Bentancur adding to their crisis.
Fellow midfielder Yves Bissouma underwent surgery on Friday on a stress fracture to his left ankle. Conte is also having to deal without captain and No 1 goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, who is out for eight weeks.
