Sigurdsson glad to be back for Tottenham
Tottenham midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson says he is raring to go after recovering from a calf injury in the the Boxing Day game against West Brom, according to TottenhamHotspur.com.
He made his first team return after coming on as a sub against former club Swansea on Sunday, and hopes to regain his first team berth as Spurs look to continue their unbeaten streak, which currently stretches to six games.
Speaking to the club’s official website, Sigurdsson said: “The injury took a little longer than I expected, but it’s completely gone now and I feel 100 per cent again. The team is doing well and it’s nice to be available again.
“I thought we played well at Swansea, hopefully now we’ll get another good result against City and kick on again.
“The league is so tight at the moment. Everyone has talked about how well Liverpool have been doing this season, but we’re now level on points. We’re right in the mix.”
Sigurdsson joined Tottenham in July 2012 from 1899 Hoffenheim in a deal that was reported to be worth around £8.8m, having previously spent a spell on loan with Swansea the previous season. He is approaching 50 appearances for the north Londoners since that time, having scored six goals. He made his international debut with Iceland in 2010.
Spurs’ next league outing sees them doing battle with Man City at White Hart Lane on 29th January.
