Two Tottenham Hotspur stars who were tested positive for COVID now confirmed as fake
According to Sky Sports, North London giants Tottenham Hotspur have been granted a major reprieve with regards to two first-team players who had tested positive for COVID.
It has now been revealed that two players on their return from international duty returned false-positive results. This comes as a boost for Spurs as the duo will now not have to isolate for 10 days.
The pair were also available for the club’s 3-2 win over Newcastle United. While the names of the players has not been revealed, Nuno Espirito Santo will be glad to have more options at his disposal going forward.
Tottenham faces Vitesse Arnhem in the UEFA Conference League and West Ham United in the Premier League in the next week. Rotation will be key and having the two players available will be a boost for the club.
Spurs confirmed the news in the lead-up to the match against Newcastle. Nuno also refused to give away the names of the players but acknowledged that the off-field issues affected the team’s performances for the match.
Thankfully the Spurs side he put up were able to come back from a goal down to win the game 3-2. Tanguy Ndombele drew the visitors level on the night before Harry Kane scored his first goal of the season to put Spurs ahead.
Son Heung-Min scored to make the lead 3-1 before halftime. Eric Dier scored an own goal to set up a nearby final few minutes but Spurs held on for a deserved victory.
