Tottenham have decided not to appeal UEFA’s decision to hand Rennes a 3-0 victory in their Europa League Conference group game, according to Jonathan Calf by PA Sports.

Spurs were due to face the French side in a crucial last game of the group stage in December, but saw the game originally called off due to a Covid outbreak in Antonio Conte’s squad (sky sports).

With space on the calendar limited for a postponement, UEFA said the game could not be played on another date (evening standard), condemning Spurs to abandon the game and ultimately withdraw from the competition.

In response, Football.London claimed last month that Spurs could appeal the verdict with their response “under review” by club lawyers.

However, Veal has now confirmed that Spurs have made a final decision on whether to pursue action against UEFA and have decided not to appeal, despite the consequences of their exit.

Spurs are currently seventh in the Premier League and firmly in contention for a top four place at the end of the season and are preparing to face Brighton in the FA Cup fourth round.

They suffered a loss to Chelsea in the Carabao Cup semi-finals last month, however, failing to score a single goal against the Blues in two legs.

In all honesty, Spurs could do without being in this competition now firmly in the second half of the season. Spurs don’t have the squad to take part as they are still firmly in the fight for a Champions League place and retain their FA Cup status this season.
