​Pochettino reassures Tottenham fans over Alderweireld injury

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has denied reports that defender Toby Alderweireld may be sidelined for some time.

Belgian media reported earlier this week that the 28-year-old feared he could suffer a recurrence of the hamstring injury he suffered against Real Madrid at the start of November.

"He is doing well, I think someone misinterpreted," said Pochettino. "That is why I want to clarify the situation.

"He said if, in the case there was the injury, maybe I am going to spend 14 weeks. But that was not the case.

"He is on time and he is doing well, recovering well.

"We don't need to be worried because he avoided an injury that would maybe keep him out for a long time."
