Report: Tottenham players left shook after witnessing injury on training ground
The 21-year-old has only just come back from an injury which ruled him out from February last season and impressed on his return against Team K-League at the beginning of pre-season.
But the Spurs youngster has suffered another set-back during one of Antonio Conte’s training sessions at Hotspur Way.
Spurs players left shook after Skipp’s injury
And his team mates were so shaken up by the injury that some were forced to look away.
The wound was caused by impact from another player’s stud and Skipp has had to have stitches in his foot.
The academy product will undoubtedly be frustrated after his latest set-back as he aims to force his way into Conte’s midfield.
But he will probably have to wait a bit longer as he is unlikely to be available for the first game of the Premier League season against Southampton.
Skipp will be big for Tottenham this season if he can stay fit
Since returning from a successful loan spell at Norwich City during the 2020-21 campaign, the youngster has impressed in Spurs’ midfield.
But the English midfielder has been short of luck in the past few months and has now suffered another setback in his attempts to cement a place in the starting eleven at Spurs.
Skipp will now face added competition too, as Conte has a wealth of options in the middle of the park, including Yves Bissouma, Pierre Emile-Hojbjerg and Rodrigo Bentancur.
But if he can avoid any further injuries, he’ll be key for Conte’s side this season as the club aims to fight on all fronts and end their trophy drought.
It doesn’t seem like the injury is anything too serious and once his stitches have healed, Skipp should be back amongst the action for Tottenham.
