Tottenham Hotspur’s Kenyan midfielder Victor Wanyama says he is happy to have returned to fitness and first-team availability.
The Harambee Stars player has spent most of the first half of the 2017/18 seasons on the sidelines due to a knee problem picked up in pre-season, but he could be back for the meeting at Southampton this weekend.
"Being injured as a footballer teaches you many things about yourself but nothing more so than if you have your health then you have your wealth," he told the Daily Mail.
"Money and all the trappings of being a footballer mean nothing unless you have your health and fitness.
"This has been a dark time for me. When Tottenham played Real Madrid at Wembley and I had to watch... I wanted to play so badly, it was probably the lowest point of my career."
Spurs will play away to the Saints on Sunday, January 21, kick-off at 18h00 CAT.
