Ben Davies: Tottenham defender could need operation on damaged ankle ligaments
Tottenham defender Ben Davies may need surgery after it was confirmed he’d damaged ankle ligaments against West Ham.
After starting Jose Mourinho’s first game in charge of Spurs, 15 minutes limped off from the end of Tottenham’s 3-2 win in the London Stadium on Saturday.
The Wales international has been replaced with Danny Rose, who may get an extended run in the side of Mourinho, although Ryan Sessegnon created the squad for the Champions League clash with Olympiakos at Davies’ absence.
Davies was in attendance at that game and, after, was spotted on crutches and with a walking boot on his foot.
He briefly ceased to talk to reporters and said he”did not believe it was great” when asked about the harm.
A Tottenham announcement :”Following ongoing examination and assessment over the past few days, we can confirm that Ben Davies sustained ligament damage to his left ankle during Saturday’s win against West Ham United.
“Assessment has been determine whether surgery is needed together with the Wales international defender anticipated to experience an elongated period of rehab.”
