Tottenham Hotspur defender Christian Ziege has suffered another injury setback after pulling a thigh muscle in his first training session following a lengthy lay-off.

Ziege injured his knee in November in his comeback match after 10 months out with a thigh injury.

“I’m starting to be fed up with it,’ Ziege told his website.

“A new year is coming and it’s about time, 2003 was a wasted year for me.”
