'I am not joking': Gary Lineker has heard seriously worrying news about Spurs before their final game

Gary Lineker has heard some really worrying news from inside Tottenham Hotspur ahead of their final game of the season at Norwich City on Sunday.

Spurs are in the driving seat to finish fourth after Arsenal slipped up. Antonio Conte has worked miracles since his arrival, and a point against the Canaries will get the job done.

Norwich are already relegated and they don’t really have anything to play for. It really should be an easy game for Spurs, but they now have a huge problem, if Lineker is to be believed.

Gary Lineker says there’s a food poisoning outbreak at Tottenham

In a season filled with problems due to Covid-19 and other illnesses, the last thing Tottenham need is another outbreak inside the club, especially when they’re at the final hurdle.

Lineker, who knows many people at Tottenham thanks to his time there as a player in the past, has heard that there’s a big problem now, and it’s seriously worrying if you’re a Tottenham supporter.

“Hearing there’s a food poisoning outbreak at @SpursOfficial. No, I am not joking,” he tweeted just a few minutes ago.

Since Lineker’s claims have been made, Tottenham journalists have been rushing to provide further information on the subject.

Jonathan Veal, who works for the Press Association, claims that Lineker’s comments aren’t actually correct.

He says that Harry Kane has been feeling unwell and has cancelled media commitments today, which is worrying enough in itself, but the hope will be that he recovers for Sunday.

Antonio Conte is now likely to provide further clarity in his press conference, which takes place later today.

TBR View:

This really is concerning.

Tottenham haven’t officially revealed anything just yet, but if what Lineker has heard is true, this could cost potentially cost Spurs dearly on the final day of the season.

Antonio Conte’s men need at least a point to secure Champions League football on Sunday against Norwich City, but if Harry Kane and co can’t make it, Spurs could potentially lose.

That would hand Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal the fourth spot – if they can beat Everton at the Emirates on Sunday.
