Cudicini released from hospital following surgery

Spurs goalkeeper Carlo Cudicini has been released from hospital after undergoing surgery on his right wrist and pelvis for injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident last week in North London.

Harry Redknapp told reporters that Cudicini looks likely to miss the rest of the current Premier League campaign: 'I would think it would be the season (he is out for). He'll be back. It will be a long job but he'll be back.'

The Spurs manager also underlined that the club were unaware of the fact that Cudicini used a motorbike: 'We don't let them do it. I've never even thought about a player riding a motorbike. We didn't know he had a bike and I'm sure he won't be riding one again to work. My only concern was his health when I went to visit him.'

Despite being linked with a loan move for Manchester United's Ben Foster, Redknapp denied that Spurs were looking to sign the England international: 'If United wanted to loan him, and I don't know if they do, it would be a problem for him to go somewhere and not play. He wants to play for England. [Heurelho] Gomes is my first-team goalkeeper and has been fantastic so there is no point in coming here as a No2.'
