Tottenham’s Bentaleb has been pictured with Watford midfielder Adlene Guedioura.
Bentaleb has not played a game for Spurs since the end of August, but any fears about him still been injured have been allayed thanks to a picture posted by Watford midfielder Adlene Guedioura.
Guedioura, also a member of the Algerian national team, has posted a collection of training photos on his personal Twitter account, showing one with Bentaleb running with the ball in his possession.
This photo proves that Bentaleb is back training and playing, and refutes a report published by DZ Foot yesterday, which claimed that the midfielder was being forced to train by himself to get up to fitness.
Many Tottenham fans believe the 20-year-old was still injured when he was called up to the Algerian national team, but this picture proves that he is ready to play, and should come back to White Hart Lane after international duty ready to feature for Spurs again.
Bentaleb has only played four games this season, and he was never particularly great in any of his early season appearances. His injury has coincided with Eric Dier and Dele Alli establishing themselves as two of the best Premier League midfielders, and Bentaleb faces a real fight to get back into Mauricio Pochettino’s first-team.
