LONDON - Tottenham Hotspur's injury
worries deepened on Monday before Tuesday's Champions League
quarter-final at Real Madrid when South African midfielder
Steven Pienaar said he was unfit to play in the first leg match.
Pienaar has been struggling with a groin injury for several
weeks, and although he played for South Africa during the recent
international break, he revealed on his Twitter account that the
injury had flared up again.

"Out for the Madrid game. Groin still not right," he wrote.
Spurs are already without central defenders Ledley King,
Jonathan Woodgate and Younes Kaboul.
Right-back Alan Hutton needs surgery on a knee injury which
will keep him out for the season, while manager Harry Redknapp
has doubts over the fitness of William Gallas and Tom
Huddlestone, although Gareth Bale should be fit.
