Tottenham Hotspur left the European Football Conference League after the European Union “UEFA” spent Monday with the English club losing its last group match against Rennes, after the match was canceled due to the outbreak of “Covid-19” in its ranks.
The match was scheduled for December 9, but was canceled due to the presence of 13 cases of Covid-19 in Tottenham, including eight players and five members of the support staff, and Rennes will be considered a 3-0 winner, with Tottenham taking third place in the group.
Tottenham were competing with Vitesse Arnhem for second place in Group G for the play-off, but they will remain third with seven points after this defeat, while Rennes will advance as the group leader with 14 points.
The match was canceled a day before its start, after Tottenham coach Antonio Conte said that eight players and five staff members had contracted the virus.
Rennes criticized Tottenham’s decision at the time, saying that the English team took it unilaterally and that he reserves the right to appeal against “UEFA”.
Three matches for Tottenham in all competitions were canceled due to the outbreak of Covid-19, and they played their first match since the fifth of December on Sunday, when they drew 2-2 with Liverpool in the Premier League.
Vitesse Arnhem will play Rapid Vienna in the knockout stage.
