Bale to miss next two games for Tottenham

Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas revealed on Monday that he expects winger Gareth Bale to miss the team's next two matches because of a foot injury.

Bale has been strongly linked with a move to Real Madrid, and he missed Tottenham's opening match of the season on Sunday, a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace.

The injury will prevent the Wales international from taking part in the upcoming Europa League qualifier with Dinamo Tbilisi this week as well as next weekend's league encounter with Swansea City.
