Scott Parker delighted to be back in action for Tottenham Hotspur
Tottenham's Scott Parker expresses his delight at making his return to action following a lengthy spell on the sidelines
Tottenham midfielder Scott Parker has expressed his delight at making his return to action following a lengthy spell on the treatment table.
Parker made his first Premier League appearance of the season in Spurs’ 1-0 win over Swansea at White Hart Lane on Sunday, after coming on as a late substitute.
The former football writers’ player of the year has had to watch his team-mates from the sidelines while he recovered from an Achilles injury sustained during England’s Euro 2012 campaign in the summer.
In addition to the substitute appearance against Swansea, Parker has also made two starts for the club’s under-21 side and he is pleased to be back in action.
“I’d been out for quite some time and I’m just pleased to be back out there,” Parker told Spurs’ website.
“My main objective now is to try and get as much game time as I can and try to get fully fit. It’s still early, but I feel good and feel sharp. I’m certainly getting there.”
Parker, who is yet to score for the first team, completed 70 minutes for Tottenham under-21’s on Monday night and netted in a 3-0 win that took them to the top of the National Group Two table.
“I got in the box and it opened up for me. It never normally does, but it did on that occasion. I stuck one away, so that was nice.” Parker said.
