- Match postponed on Wednesday night after outbreak escalated
- Rennes accuse Spurs of ‘lack of fair play’ after postponement
Tottenham’s push to postpone their Europa Conference League tie at home against Rennes on Thursday night has been met with a furious response by the French club, who have accused them of acting unilaterally – without the support of Uefa – and in bad faith.
Spurs, who have experienced an alarming rise in Covid cases and have closed the first-team area of their training centre, released a statement at 9pm to say the game against Rennes was off, with English football confronting an escalating crisis in terms of the virus.
