Lo Celso plays down injury

with No Comments

Tottenham midfielder Giovani Lo Celso has picked up a groin injury while on international duty with Argentina, but played down the severity of the blow.

The 23-year-old was withdrawn after 53 minutes during the 0-0 draw against Chile and looks likely to miss their match with Mexico on Wednesday.

However, Lo Celso told reporters: “My problem was only a blow. It is not something to worry about.

“We deserved a bit more. We had a lot of chances to convert but it wasn’t to be.”

The creative midfielder has made three substitute appearances in the Premier League since his arrival, but is yet to start a game for the Champions League runners-up.

Fellow summer transfer window acquisitions Tanguy Ndombele and Ryan Sessegnon are also currently sidelined with injuries.
