Adam's agent slams Bale coward jibe
Charlie Adam's agent has hit back at Gareth Bale
Charlie Adam's agent has defended the Liverpool midfielder after he was labelled a coward by Tottenham winger Gareth Bale.
Wales international Bale was left on crutches at the weekend following a bad tackle from Adam during the 0-0 draw between the two sides in Baltimore. It was not the first such incident involving the pair, with Adam having injured Bale in a tackle in May 2011, causing ankle ligament damage which ruled the Spurs man out for three months.
Bale branded Adam "a bit of a coward" after the latest clash, but Adam's representative Kenny Moyes claims such talk is "outrageous".
Quoted in the Daily Star, 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 out and say that."
Bale and Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas both called for an apology in the aftermath of the tackle, but received good news yesterday on the severity of the injury.
The 23-year-old has resumed light training after scans revealed the damage was not as serious as first feared.
Quoted in the Daily Mail, Villas-Boas said: "Needless to say, we are extremely relieved Gareth has not been seriously injured."

Well considering Gareth Bal played on for a further 10-20 minutes after the tackle, I don't see why they thought the injuy was serious in the first place, if they thought it was serious, they'd have taken him off IMMEDIATELY.
Actually it's AMAZING he's playing at all, after his back injury forced him out of the Olympics.
My message to Bale..........Grow a pair mate.
Bale has no obligation to attend the Olympics.
On this subject: Charlie Adam is a bad tackler by 'modern day' standards... Bale is a bit of a diver sometimes. End of.
