Spurs fans have voiced their frustrations on Twitter after it was reported that Giovani Lo Celso and Cristian Romero will travel for Argentina’s World Cup qualifiers next month, against the wishes of the north London club.
According to Argentine journalist Christian Martin (via Daily Hotspur), both of Spurs’ Argentinian internationals will travel for their World Cup qualifying games during the international break, despite it being agreed earlier this week that Premier League clubs wouldn’t allow their players to play in international games in red-list countries due to the enforced isolation period that they would face on their return to England.
How did Spurs fans react to this news?
“Lamela would never have done that to us.”
“If the club doesn’t want them to go, they shouldn’t be able to?”
“Both are holding their Spurs careers back by travelling.”
“Nah we can refuse to release them. They don’t have a choice.”
“Work away don’t pay them until they are back available again.”
“I swear Nuno said they won’t go.”
Should Romero and Lo Celso be allowed to play?
Some of these Spurs fans were critical of the two players, whereas others seem confident that they won’t be allowed to travel for the games.
Whilst it is a tough decision for Premier League clubs to have to make, you can understand them not wanting their players travelling to different countries in the middle of a pandemic, espcially if it means they cannot feature on their return.
Both players impressed in the midweek win against Pacos de Ferreira, with Romero assisting Harry Kane with a superb ball over the top, whilst Lo Celso scored the third from a free-kick, so it would be a blow for Nuno Espirito Santo to lose them, as he looks to continue his solid start as Spurs boss.
