The Blackpool captain Charlie Adam has come out and insisted that there was no malice intended after injuring Gareth Bale on Saturday. The Spurs player was stretchered off after the incident and left the ground in a protective boot.
Speaking to Sky Sports Adam said: “I just saw the ball and tried to get it. It was never intentional. I never tried to hurt him because he’s a wonderful player and at the end of the day I’d rather see these players on the pitch.”
He also revealed that he had been straight into the dressing room after the game to apologise to Bale.
