Spurs winger Bergwijn vows to 'come back stronger'

Tottenham Hotspur winger Steven Bergwijn has vowed to return from injury stronger than ever.

The Dutchman impressed for Spurs after arriving in January from PSV, but a serious ankle injury derailed his season.

"I'm making progress," he told Spurs' official website . "As you can see, I can walk now and [I've got] my new boot, so that's good news.

"At the moment I got the kick [against Burnley] I thought it was serious. I was in so much pain and that night, I couldn't sleep. It was bad, but we're making progress and I'll come back stronger.

"I've had a good time here. I still have [despite the injury] – but these things happen. It's football."
