Pienaar looking to return to Tottenham injury-free

Tottenham midfielder Steven Pienaar is planning to return to the North London club next season after enduring an injury-plagued five-months following his move from Everton.

The South Africa international made just 11 appearances for Spurs last term and is looking to settle into White Hart Lane a bit more comfortably when he is fully fit next term.

"Of course when you join in the middle of the season you have to get used to your surroundings and the players, so the first five months have been about getting used to everything," he told the club's official website.

"Hopefully it will be a new start for me during pre-season and I will give it my best shot next season.

"I'm at an advantage because in the games I've played I've got used to the players and the way they play.

"In pre-season I've got a better chance because I know everyone so I just have to go out and push from the start."
