Steven Bergwijn can play again for Tottenham Hotspur in the English league match against Manchester City on Saturday. The attacker has recovered from the injury that cost him the international matches of the Dutch national team. Bergwijn was examined on Monday on arrival in Zeist by the medical staff of Orange and it turned out that he was not fit enough for the duels with Spain, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Poland. The former PSV player therefore immediately returned to London.
“Steven has been here for two weeks and that gave him time to recover,” said manager José Mourinho. “He is now ready for Saturday’s game.” Bergwijn has fond memories of Manchester City. The 23-year-old international of Orange made his debut for Spurs on February 2 with a beautiful goal against City. This season, Bergwijn only played four times in the Premier League, mainly as a substitute.
Tottenham Hotspur is in second place with 17 points from eight matches, City takes 10th place with 12 points from seven matches.
