Tottenham Hotspur defender Kyle Walker is on the road to recovery after surgery.

Tottenham Hotspur defender Kyle Walker posted a picture of himself recovering after abdominal surgery.

The talented right-back has been out of action and hasn’t featured so far for new Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino.

While his spirits appear to be high via the Instagram post, the club have been reluctant to set a return date for the England international as he fights his way back to full fitness.

Walker posted the picture of himself with the caption: “On the road to recovery after surgey.”

It’s important the club give him every chance to get back to full fitness considering the high number of games Spurs play across all competitions this season.

“We believe he may recover soon but we need to be calm with him because it is an injury that he has had for five months,” said manager Pochettino.

Here’s to a full and speedy recovery for one of the best right-backs in the Premier League.
