Tottenham defender Woodgate fears being forced into retirement

Tottenham defender Jonathan Woodgate fears he may be forced into retirement.

The Mirror says Woodgate is battling to overcome a long-term groin injury that has restricted him to only three Premier League games this season.

And the 29-year-old is worried he will never recover his fitness, despite a series of operations and specialist treatment in America.

A source close to the player revealed: "He is really down at the moment. He has tried everything and nothing seems to be working.

"He has already thought about the possibility of hanging up his boots although he is trying to keep his hopes up about getting fit again."
