Gareth Bale: Suffered ankle injury against Basel in Europa League Sky Bet Football Betting Retrieving latest Sky Bet odds Football Betting 10 Free Bet Tottenham winger Gareth Bale’s team-mates are hoping the Welshman can make a speedy recovery after he was stretchered off with an ankle injury against Basel.
Bale suffered the problem towards the end of Spurs’ 2-2 draw in the first leg of their UEFA Europa League quarter-final against the Swiss side at White Hart Lane and is set to have a scan on his ankle on Friday.
His exit prompted concerns that his season could be ended prematurely but manager Andre Villas-Boas has said he is hopeful the problem is not as serious as first feared.
Bale has been Tottenham’s star player this season, scoring 22 goals in all competitions, and team-mate Mousa Dembele is keeping his fingers crossed the injury will not keep the 23-year-old out for long.
“He’s a player who’s been unbelievably important for us this year and he can be even more important,” said the Belgian.
“We all hope that he will be fit.” Gylfi Sigurdsson, who scored the equaliser for Spurs after Emmanuel Adebayor had pulled them back into it from 2-0 down, admits it is a case of waiting to see how serious Bale’s injury is.
Aaron Lennon was also injured early on in the clash and Sigurdsson, who replaced the winger in just the 24th minute, feels his absence could also prove an untimely blow.
“Hopefully (Bale) will recover quickly and recover for the next few matches,” he added.
“Lennon obviously came off as well and he’s very important to us.
They’re top quality players and hopefully they’ll get back soon.” Goalkeeper Brad Friedel, who took over from Hugo Lloris between the sticks on Thursday night, agrees it is a waiting game for Spurs over Bale.
He added: “We’ll have to wait and see.
Nobody at this moment in time knows how severe it is.”

PFK have agreed to sell Portsmouth to the Pompey Supporters’ Trust Portsmouth’s administrators have signed a conditional agreement to sell the npower League One club to the Pompey Supporters’ Trust.
Trevor Birch, of administrators PKF, confirmed they have signed an agreement with the PST which is subject to receiving permission to sell Fratton Park.
The move comes after the administrators withdrew preferred bidder status from Portpin, the largest creditor in the Portsmouth Football Club (2010) administration, more than three weeks ago and named PST as the preferred bidders.
“We can confirm that we have signed a sale agreement with the PST to acquire the business of Portsmouth Football Club,” Birch said in a statement.
“Portpin has rejected the Trust’s offer for Fratton Park, so the sale has to be conditional on receiving the Court’s permission to sell the ground.
We are therefore in the process of submitting an application to the Court.
“I’m sure every member of staff, every player and every supporter will join with me in wishing to see a speedy resolution of what has been a protracted administration.
“Everyone involved in the transaction has worked incredibly hard to get the deal to this stage and, although there is still much that needs to be done, today’s announcement marks what is hopefully the beginning of the end of the process.”
Bradley Wiggins: Hurt in cycling accident Two separate road accidents involving Bradley Wiggins and his mentor Shane Sutton have led to British Cycling to call for a new Government-led safety drive.
Wiggins’ accident on Wednesday evening was followed less than 24 hours later by a serious injury to British Cycling’s head coach Sutton, the right-hand man to performance director Dave Brailsford.
Wiggins has been released from hospital after a vehicle collided with him on Wednesday evening but Sutton suffered bleeding on the brain following a road accident while on his bike in Manchester on Thursday.
A British Cycling spokeswoman said: “It is extremely rare that our riders and coaches are hurt while out cycling on the road, even rarer that two incidents should occur in a short space of time, and we wish Shane and Bradley a speedy recovery.
“Cycling is not an intrinsically dangerous activity but there is much more to be done to improve conditions for cyclists on the roads.
“British Cycling is calling on the government to put cycling at the heart of transport policy to ensure that cycle safety is built into the design of all new roads, junctions and transport projects, rather than being an afterthought.” Sutton was wearing a helmet when he was in collision with a Peugeot 206 being driven by a 61-year-old man in Levenshulme.
The British Cyclist spokeswoman added: “Shane was taken into hospital where it was identified he has suffered bruising and bleeding on the brain.
“Shane was wearing a helmet.
He is set to undergo more tests, and is likely to stay in hospital for the next few days.”
