It’s sad but true,Tottenham star ‘faked injury’ so he could ‘leave training and catch a flight’

Tottenham left-back Destiny Udogie was nowhere to be seen as the club posted footage from their first-team training session on Wednesday 14 February.

He has missed just three Premier League games all season, with two of those due to suspension while he was unavailable for the 2-1 win at Selhurst Park against Crystal Palace on Friday 27 October as a result of a muscle injury.

However, there is now some cause for concern among supporters regarding Udogie’s injury status with Tottenham set to host Wolves in the Premier League on Saturday 17 February.

Udogie was brought off in the 80th minute of Spurs’ 2-1 home win against Brighton last time out (10 February).

After the match, Postecoglou was asked if there were any fresh injury concerns from the game and responded (via Football London, 10 February), “No I don’t think so. Destiny went off but I’m not sure if it was cramp, but everyone else was OK as far as I know.”

While the Australian sounded optimistic at first, footage posted by Spurs to their official X account on Wednesday 14 February won’t have done much to ease fans’ concerns.

If he is unavailable for the game against Wolves, it will certainly hurt Spurs’ chances of collecting another three points, and supporters will be hopeful that his absence from the footage on Wednesday is just an unfortunate coincidence.
