Ex-Spurs captain Mabbutt undergoes op

Tottenham have confirmed former captain Gary Mabbutt is recovering following an emergency procedure to remove a circulation blockage in his left leg.

Mabbutt, 51, won the UEFA Cup and FA Cup during his time at White Hart Lane and is a firm favourite among Spurs supporters.

A statement on the club's official website confirmed Mabbutt had undergone successful surgery and would remain in hospital for the next two weeks.

"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,'' the statement read.

"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.''

Former Spurs team-mate Gary Lineker added on Twitter: "Gary Mabbutt has had emergency surgery. Don't know details, but I do know there is no man more gutsy than Mabbs. Get well soon.''
