Charlie Adam’s agent came out in defence of his client

Kenny Moyes, agent of Liverpool star Charlie Adam, has come out in defence of his client after being accused by Tottenham ace Gareth Bale of being a coward.

The Reds midfielder’s challenge left the Welshman in pain and on crutches during a pre-season friendly.

It was not the first time the pair had clashed with Bale injured for three months after a bad challenge from the Scot.

“Everyone in football knows he has no malice or anything like that in him,” Moyes said.

“For someone to have a go like that is outrageous.

“It was schoolboyish for them to come out and say that.”
