LONDON, Nov 16 – Tottenham say goalkeeper Carlo Cudicini is expected to make a full recovery after surgery on injuries he suffered in an horrific motorbike crash.The 36-year-old Italian hit a car on Thursday while driving through east London, fracturing his wrist and damaging his pelvis.
The former Chelsea star was operated on at a private hospital on Friday and his north London club believe he is on course for a full recovery from an accident initially described as "life-changing" by ambulance staff.
Tottenham assistant manager Kevin Bond said on Sunday: "It’s going to take some time, he will be on crutches for a period of time and no doubt he’ll be in hospital for a good few days yet," Bond told Sky Sports News.
"Obviously it’s such good news that all being well he will make a full recovery.
"At this moment no-one is going to put any type of time span on it – we are just glad to know that he’s well.
"That’s the most important thing and hopefully he’ll be back putting his boots on and his gloves on in the not so distant future."
A female driver and a child passenger escaped unharmed from the car involved in the accident, which was described as a ‘write off’.
