A number of first-team players have tested positive for the virus, and the Premier League club is without them.
Tottenham’s UEFA Conference League match against Rennes on Thursday has been postponed owing to an epidemic of Covid-19, according to the Londoners.
In the run-up to the match, eight players and five more members of staff tested positive for Spurs, severely limiting the club’s selection options.
Rennes, on the other hand, slammed Tottenham’s announcement, claiming that it was “unilateral” and that Spurs had acted unfairly throughout the process.
After a number of positive COVID-19 cases at the Club, Tottenham confirmed that their UEFA Europa Conference League Group G home match against Stade Rennais will not take place tomorrow (Thursday 9 December at 8 pm UK).
The club noted that discussions are ongoing with UEFA and the club will provide a further update on this fixture in due course.
Following discussions with the Health Security Agency (formerly Public Health England) and DCMS advisers, the Club has also been advised to close the First Team area of its Training Centre at this time, in the interests of the health and safety of players and staff.
