Harry Redknapp has wished Carlo Cudicini a speedy recovery after the Tottenham goalkeeper was injured in a motorbike crash.
Cudicini was rushed to hospital on Thursday after suffering injuries in a road accident that were initially described by police as 'possibly life-changing'.
Tottenham quickly released a statement to say he had fractured his wrists and injured his pelvis in the accident.
He is scheduled to undergo surgery later on Friday after being transferred to a private hospital where he is under the care of specialists.
"We have leading specialists looking after Carlo and once surgery is complete and his recovery is underway, we will have a clearer idea of how many weeks he will be out for," said Tottenham's Head of Medical Services Wayne Diesel.
There remain concerns over Cudicini's career as reports suggest he may have breached his contract with the club by riding a high-powered motorbike.
Manager Redknapp, meanwhile, has spoken of his shock at the incident but he is just thankful that it was not any worse.
"We are all sorry to hear about what happened with Carlo," he stated.
"We are just relieved that the injuries he suffered in the accident were not more serious.
"Everyone at the club sends their best wishes to him and we hope he recovers soon."
