Adam camp fights back after criticism over Bale challenge
Kenny Moyes, the agent of Charlie Adam, has jumped to his client’s defence after accusations from Gareth Bale regarding a challenge made in a preseason game at the weekend. The Independent have reported that Moyes strongly disagrees with Bale’s remarks suggesting that Adam is a “coward,” instead claiming that those who have commented on the tackle at Tottenham have acted in a childish manner.
Moyes said: “It doesn’t warrant a reply because everyone knows Charlie is not that type of player. Everyone in football knows he has no malice or anything like that in him. For someone to have a go like that is outrageous. It was schoolboyish for them to come and say that.”
The challenge in Baltimore was the second such incident between the two players. Adam caused a stir when making a similar challenge on Bale during his Blackpool days in a Premier League fixture.
Bale has already returned to training and is expected to be fit for Spurs’ next game. A scan revealed that there was not as much damage done as first feared by Head Coach Andre Villas-Boas - who himself called for the Liverpool midfielder to apologise. The next time the two meet is in November at White Hart Lane.
