Tottenham confirms Bentancur will miss the season after knee surgery

Bentancur, who scored the opening goal of the match against the Foxes, was forced off after sustaining a knee injury in the 65th minute at the king power Stadium. Tottenham confirms the player will miss the remainder of the season.

Following his injury, Rodrigo Bentancur has undergone successful surgery in Spain on his ruptured anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee and will reportedly miss the remainder of the season, as Tottenham confirms.

Pierre-Emile Højbjerg said earlier about losing the Uruguayan midfielder: "

We were speaking the other day and I told him 'we are improving each other, we are friends, we are team-mates, but we are pushing each other. This is something fun but also interesting between us.

"It does hurt. You have a feeling he makes you better playing alongside him and that is a mutual feeling. We have both added scoring points to our game this season which is not bad.

"We have to manage it; we have to overcome this. I told him personally how great I think he is, but this is a time to come back stronger and grow, which life gives you sometimes. It is not easy, there will be difficult moments, but he is a strong and smart person who will find his way."
