Alex Morgan not fit enough to make Tottenham debut yet

Alex Morgan’s Tottenham debut has been delayed as she returns to action following pregnancy, with the American forward not fit enough to make the bench at Manchester City

MANCHESTER, England — Alex Morgan’s Tottenham debut has been delayed as she returns to action following pregnancy, with the American forward not fit enough to make the bench at Manchester City on Sunday.

“The hardest part about coming back after pregnancy is being patient with myself,” Morgan said Sunday. “I can’t wait to get on the pitch with my team, but that will have to wait until I’m 100% fit.”

Morgan said she is “feeling fitter & faster every day” but has only been training two weeks with Tottenham.

There was due to be at least one American recent import to the Women’s Super League on the pitch in Manchester, with Sam Mewis making City’s starting lineup and Rose Lavelle on the bench.
