Dragusin Set for First Starting Appearance with Tottenham Hotspur Against Fulham

SportsDragusin Set for First Starting Appearance with Tottenham Hotspur Against Fulham

Due to injury, Micky van de Ven will not play for Tottenham Hotspur against Fulham on Saturday in the Premier League. Instead, Romanian defender Radu Dragusin will start for the first time.

Dragusin only made a few appearances off the bench after joining in January after leaving Genoa.

“I’ll eliminate the tension in it. Manager Ange Postecoglou told reporters on Friday that he will begin work tomorrow.

With only one game each week with exceptional players like Micky and Cristian (Romero), he has had to wait patiently for his chance. He made good use of his opportunity, in my opinion. He can definitely provide something new, in my opinion.

In the 4-0 victory over Aston Villa last week, Dragusin, 22, came on as a substitute for Van van Ven early in the second half. He cost Tottenham 25 million pounds ($31.86 million).

Initially, there were concerns that Dutchman Van de Ven might have re-opened his significant hamstring injury from earlier in the season, which sidelined him for many weeks.

Postecoglou, nevertheless, said that the wound was not severe.

The manager stated, “He’ll miss tomorrow, but we’re pretty confident that with the international break he won’t miss too much more.” “I believe he came off at the right time.”

With a victory at Craven Cottage, Tottenham Hotspur may climb up to fourth position, and the arrival of Brazilian striker Richarlison from a knee injury may help them.

“Richy has trained, so he should be ready for tomorrow if he performs well in training today,” he stated.
