Tottenham star admits to coronavirus concerns ahead of Manchester City clash



Gareth Bale admits to coronavirus concerns after Wales vs Ireland clash

As reported by Sky Sports, Tottenham Hotspur star Gareth Bale has admitted that he is concerned about contracting the coronavirus after coming in contact with Matt Doherty.

Bale faced off against Doherty when Wales clashed against the Republic of Ireland in the UEFA Nations League this past weekend. Post the game, it was confirmed that the Tottenham right-back had tested positive for coronavirus and is suffering from mild symptoms. (h/t Daily Mail)

“It’s a slight concern for everybody when you’ve been playing someone and you’re in close contact with them on the field. Maybe you’re not long enough with them to catch it, but you’re a bit wary.”

But the good news is that all of Wales’ players, including the Tottenham trio of Bale, Ben Davies and Joe Rodon, have tested negative for the virus ahead of their Nations League game against Finland, which has come as a relief for the 31-year-old. (h/t Sky Sports)

“It’s good news that everyone’s come back and tested negative and now we can just concentrate on the game on Wednesday.”
