Parker worry for Tottenham
London - Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Scott Parker could miss the start of the season because of an ankle injury, the BBC reported on Tuesday.

"There might be a small tear on his Achilles," manager Andre Villas-Boas said.
"We are evaluating the situation regarding a possible operation that can take four to six weeks normally to heal."
Tottenham's first Premier League game is away to Newcastle United on August 18.
