Spurs star Gareth Bale labels Reds’ Charlie Adam a “coward”
Tottenham Hotspur ace Gareth Bale labelled Liverpool midfielder Charlie Adam as a “coward” after he made a horrendous tackle on him during a friendly preseason match on Saturday. The match resulted in a goalless draw.
The Welsh speedster revealed that Charlie Adam’s tackle could have put him on the sidelines. Gareth Bale left Baltimore Stadium with a protective boot on his foot. This confirms that the youngster has received trauma on his ankle.
Gareth Bale is expected to play in the Tottenham Hotspur’s season opener in spite of the injury. Meanwhile, Charlie Adam is coming under pressure to apologize Gareth Bale for his tackle.
Tottenham Hotspur’s medical staff will reveal the details of the injury Gareth Bale received on his left ankle later today. Gareth Bale believes Charlie Adam deliberately tried to injure. Well, if he is correct this won’t be the first time Charlie Adam has put Gareth Bale on the bench.
Charlie Adam left Gareth Bale with severe ligament damage on his ankle, back when he played for Blackpool.
“When someone makes a very bad tackle on you in a game you expect him to come up and apologise,” Gareth Bale told The Sun in an interview. “But he didn't say anything to me afterwards. I've had no apology.
“That's what kind of person he is like - he's done it before. I'm not going to accept his apology.
“From what I've seen of him on the pitch, I think he's a bit of a coward.”
Gareth Bale expressed that it was unprofessional of Charlie Adam to make such tackle during a friendly game. Andres Villas-Boas, the new Tottenham Hotspur, breathed a huge sigh of relief when he was told that Gareth Bale had escaped serious injury.
“I was surprised to see a challenge like that in a friendly,” Gareth Bale added. “We're all over here to build our fitness and get a good workout and what he did was over the top, to be honest.
“But some people are like that and it's just wrong. There are pictures on the internet of what he did before when he snapped all my ankle ligaments.
“I was out for three months that time and one player told me he went out to do the same thing to me again.”
The 23-year-old left wing player, Gareth Bale was pivotal to Tottenham Hotspur’s success last season. Gareth Bale scored 12 goals in 42 appearances last season.
