National team boss describes Spurs player’s injury as ‘significant’


Welsh assistant manager Robert Page has provided a worrying verdict on Ben Davies current injury.

The Tottenham Hotspur left-back withdrew from Wales’ upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Belgium and the Czech Republic along with a friendly against Mexico.

Davies started Tottenham’s Premier League match against Aston Villa on the bench, but came on during the second half after Sergio Reguilon was unable to continue due to an injury.

Spurs boss Jose Mourinho revealed on Instagram yesterday that the 27-year-old was already injured before he graced the Villa Park pitch, but decided to play to help out his team after receiving praise from the Portuguese.

Page, who is currently Wales’ acting manager in place of Ryan Giggs was speaking ahead of this evening’s match in Belgium has claimed that Davies, along with Luton defender Tom Lockyer have both suffered ‘significant injuries‘ while playing for their clubs.

Davies’ injury is said to be a soft tissue problem, with Wales deciding against calling up a replacement.

Page told BBC Sport“It’s not great news for us,” 

“It’s not ideal preparation with only two days before the game, but it is what it is and we’ve got to react to that now and pick a team who we think can win us the game.”
