'It's been torturous' - Tottenham player Bongani Khumalo talks about last eight months of his career

South Africa Football Stadium

Tottenham defender Bongani Khumalo made his comeback for their under-21 side on Monday.

Kyle Walker was not the only Tottenham player to make his comeback from injury on Monday night.

Alongside him featuring against Manchester City in an under-21 clash was South African international Bongani Khumalo.

Somewhat of a forgotten figure at White Hart Lane, Khumalo last played club football on loan at Doncaster Rovers, and has been out since picking up an injury on international duty back in March.

He completed his comeback match in the 2-1 win over City, and told SpursTV of his tough past few months.

"It's been torturous at times. I've had good support from everyone at the club and my family, and it just feels good to be back on the field.

"Eight months, obviously a bit of sharpness lacking, but I'm just glad to make it through 90 minutes, something to work on from here."

Khumalo added that he felt good physically after the game, with his previously injured knee holding up well.

It remains to be seen if he will make it into the club's first team plans, but with his first chance to impress head coach Mauricio Pochettino, there is potential for the Argentine to approach his situation with an open mind.
