Cudicini recovering well

Published Add your comment

Tottenham keeper Carlo Cudicini is making a good recovery following surgery on injuries sustained in a motorcycle crash but still faces 12 weeks on crutches.

The 36-year-old Italian was hospitalised on Thursday after his BMW superbike collided with a Ford Fiesta in Walthamstow. He suffered injuries described by police as "potentially life-changing", and underwent surgery on Friday night on his right wrist and pelvis.

Spurs' head of medical services Wayne Diesel told the club's official website on Saturday: "Both specialists are extremely pleased with the result and expect a good recovery. Carlo is in a lot less discomfort than before the operations and is in good spirits."

Cudicini fractured both wrists in the accident, but Diesel added: "The splint on his left wrist has been removed and he now has full use of this wrist.

"He will remain in hospital for a few more days and then be on forearm crutches for about 12 weeks."

Cudicini arrived at White Hart Lane last January on a free transfer following a decade at Chelsea.

The Italian has made eight appearances and only last month said he was keen to stay beyond the end of the campaign, when his contract expires.
