Football UK reports that Gilberto have failed his second medical fitness test and wouldn’t be joining the English Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur this month. The announcement come just days after it was virtually confirmed that the Hertha Berlin wing-back would switch to White Hart lane.
The pull out of Spurs at the last possible moment comes as a surprise to the German Bundesliga side but they must be smiling inside now that one of their prized assets is going to remain with them until at least the summer. For Spurs, the break down in talks implies that manager Juande Ramos is once again unable to get a player whom he wanted.
The 31-year had passed the first fitness test at White Hart Lane but couldn’t pass the second one. Somewhat strange, isn’t it?
