Tottenham turn to blood-spinning to hasten Bale return

Tottenham have turned to blood spinning to hasten Gareth Bale's injury recovery.

Tottenham have turned to blood spinning to hasten Gareth Bale's injury recovery.

The Daily Mail says Spurs are putting their faith in the once controversial blood-spinning technique to speed up Bale's recovery from an ankle injury.

Bale's season looked to be over last Thursday after the Welshman sustained a serious looking ankle injury in Spurs' 2-2 draw against Basle.

But after a scan on Friday, it emerged that Bale would only miss two games - Sunday's 2-2 draw against Everton and the Europa League quarter-final second leg clash in Switzerland on Thursday night.

Manager Andre Villas-Boas is understandably keen to have Bale fit again as quickly as possible and club doctors will use the blood-spinning method to aid his recovery from injury as Tottenham look to get their star man back on the field for the visit of Manchester City on April 21.
