Redknapp: Lennon way off fitness

Lennon suffered an injury setback last month, having already been

sidelined for two months after suffering tears in his groin

muscles. Redknapp, however, is hoping he will play again for Spurs

before the end of the season. He said: “It must be frustrating for

Aaron. He’s desperate to get fit. We just can’t get him right. He’s

had a few goes and broken down. “He’s been back to the specialist.

We’re taking our time again, building up his strength in the groin

area. He works every day with the physios and hopefully he will be

working back outside shortly but he’s not ready to join the group

again. He’s quite a way off.” Asked on BBC Radio Five Live’s

Sportsweek programme if Lennon was a doubt for the World Cup he

added: “I hope not. I hope he’s going to be okay. I hope he’ll play

for us before the end of the season. “He could suddenly see a bit

of light and come back and if he does then he could be ready. Four

or five weeks, we’ll have to wait and see.”
