Published Add your comment

Manager Andre Villas-Boas fears Tottenham could be without Scott Parker until Christmas.

Parker has yet to play this season due to an Achilles injury and although Villas-Boas is encouraged by the 32-year-old's recent progress, he is uncertain how soon he will be ready to return.

"It's difficult for him as he still feels pain and is still disturbed in his recovery," said Villas-Boas, quoted in several national newspapers.
