Tottenham winger Gareth Bale will miss the Olympics through injury according to reports.
Bale was selected in Stuart Pearce’s Team GB squad for the event in London next month but is understood to have ggravated an old back and hip injury while on a personal training run.
More importantly it’s worrying news for Tottenham who open their Premier League campaign with a trip to Newcastle United on 18th August. To be without Bale, Parker and even Modric for the start of the season would come as a massive blow to us.
From a Spurs perspective it’s better for Bale to sit out the Olympics to give him every chance of being fit for the Newcastle match. Very worrying times!
