Gareth Bale injury blow rocks Tottenham Hotspur FC

Tottenham Hotspur are sweating over the fitness of star man Gareth Bale after he was stretchered off during Thursday’s Europa League clash with FC Basel.

Bale sustained an ankle injury during the 2-2 draw at White Hart Lane and had to be carried off the field, but Spurs are now hoping the Wales international’s injury is not as bad as they first feared.

Manager Andre Villas-Boas told BBC Sport:

“It shouldn’t be as bad as it looks on the image. There is a big, big possibility if we stay positive that he will be fit for the Manchester City game (on Sunday, April 21) and it will only take him out of two games.
“There’s lots of swelling. The pain is obviously very big. He will have a scan (on Friday).”

Gylfi Sigurdsson is also hoping Bale makes a swift recovery, with Tottenham still competing on both the domestic and European scene.

“It’s hard to say, but hopefully he will recover quickly and be ready for the next game,” Sigurdsson told Sky Sports News. “He’s very important to us. Those two players (Bale and Aaron Lennon who was also injured) would be important to any team and hopefully they’ll get back soon.”
