Ange Postecoglou provides James Maddison injury update ahead of Tottenham game vs Bournemouth


Ange Postecoglou has provided a positive update on James Maddison's fitness and indicated "at the moment he will be available" for Tottenham's game against Bournemouth. Playing a key role in last Saturday's 2-0 win over Man Utd at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with a dazzling midfield display, Spurs fans were left slightly worried about their new signing after he was seen leaving the stadium on crutches and wearing a protective boot.

The England international did pick up a knock in the second half of Saturday's win after going down in United's box but he did manage to carry on to play the full 90 minutes. Walking past the assembled media in the mixed zone after the game, Maddison revealed that the protective boot was for "precaution".

Amid the question marks over his fitness heading into this weekend's trip to Bournemouth, Postecoglou has given some positive news on the 26-year-old.

"Madders trained today unrestricted," he said in his pre-match press conference at Hotspur Way. "We'll see how he pulls up but at the moment he will be available."

He added: "I think it was the incident when Romero got brought down, he had a shot and it was a block tackle. His ankle was a bit sore after that but medical team looked after him.

"There was no real push to have him available. It was down to him. People would have seen him in a moon boot but it was more precautionary. He has felt good and probably could have trained yesterday."
