Gary Mabbutt: Will remain in hospital for two weeks

The Spurs and England centre-half, now 51, was rushed to hospital after suffering a circulation blockage in his left leg.

Mabbutt will remain under observation at Kings College Hospital for around two weeks, but he is expected to make a full recovery.

A statement on the Spurs website read: "The Club are delighted to report that Gary Mabbutt is now making a successful recovery from an emergency operation to cure a circulation blockage in his left leg.

"Our former captain was admitted to Kings College Hospital, London, for a peripheral artery bypass operation and will remain in hospital for a two-week recovery period.

"Everybody at the Club would like to wish him a full and speedy recovery, while Gary himself would like to thank his dedicated medical team and staff at Kings College."

Mabbutt, who began his career with Bristol Rovers, remains the longest-serving player in Spurs history having made 482 appearances in 16 years with the club before retiring in 1988.

He collected one UEFA Cup and two FA Cup winners' medals and also earned 16 caps for England.

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
