Tottenham star exits international camp with club doctor as long-term injury flares up - report
Tottenham midfielder Victor Wanyama has left the Kenya training camp and will not play a part in their friendly against the Central Africa Republic on Tuesday evening, according to a report.
The Daily Nation claims that Wanyama was accompanied by a Spurs doctor as they keep tabs on his long-term knee injury.
They were said to have left the international training camp to head back to Tottenham immediately.
And the report claims that Wanyama was feeling discomfort from the injury while he was training.
Football Kenya Federation president Nick Mwendwa said: “We had discussions with Tottenham and agreed to release him after the Comoros game.
“The league season in England is at a crucial stage and his club says they desperately need his services at this point.”

Football Insider verdict:
This will be worrying for Tottenham fans, although it does seem that there was an agreement for him to leave early. However, the fact that he was feeling discomfort in his knee – a long-term injury – doesn’t bode well for the immediate future. Wanyama has only played 11 Premier League games this season, with just three starts, as the club doctor continues to monitor his progress. Wanyama did play for Kenya on Saturday and scored both goals one at the start and one at the end of the game, and it looks like he’s now set to be the victim of another club v country injury.
