Holtby: Spurs senior players keeping Townsend grounded

Lewis Holtby is delighted for Tottenham teammate Andros Townsend over his success this season.

He is likely to return against Hull tomorrow after being rested for Thursday's 2-0 Europa League win at FC Sheriff in Moldova.

Holtby said: "Andros is a national hero and we are all very pleased for him.

"But he is a young guy and we have been telling him there could be some rocky paths ahead.

"Being a footballer is a long journey and you have to be ready for the bumpy parts."
