Tottenham struck by Covid outbreak as \’six first-team players and two staff test positive\’ ahead of Europa Conference League clash with Rennes
Tottenham have been hit by a Covid-19 outbreak ahead of Thursday\’s Europa Conference League match against Rennes.
At least six Tottenham first-team players and two members of backroom staff are believed to have tested positive for Covid, and Spurs are waiting for the results of PCR tests to confirm the extent of the problem.
The 10-day period of self-isolation for anyone who tests positive means Spurs\’ players hit by the outbreak are set to miss their next three games.
After facing Rennes, Antonio Conte\’s side returns to Premier League action with a trip to Brighton on Sunday, before they travel to Leicester City next Thursday and host Liverpool on December 19.
