Tottenham Hotspur fans have been reacting to news surrounding some of their players ahead of the upcoming international break.
There were certainly some rather confusing and dramatic scenes during the last international break, with the Brazil v Argentina game abandoned because of the presence of four Premier League players, including two Spurs players – Giovani Lo Celso and Cristian Romero – following a breach of health and safety protocols ahead of their trip to South America, with the players themselves then forced to train in Croatia rather than being stuck in isolation upon their return to England.
In an effort to avoid such scenes this time around, though, it appears as though some changes are set to be made.
According to a report from Argentine outlet TyC Sports, the two aforementioned Spurs players, who have been picked once again for their country, will not have to go down that route following their latest round of international games, noting that “those summoned from the Premier League this time will be able to return directly to England, where they will have to do only a five-day isolation but can train individually”.
The news of this was relayed to fans by @LastWordOnSpurs for fans to react to on social media, where it garnered some rather interesting responses:
“All this international duty is a joke. No wonder there’s no continuity in the team…it’s forever being split up.”
Will Cristian Romero be a success at Tottenham Hotspur?
Let’s hope that this provides some form of clarity for all clubs moving forward and allows the players affected to be back in action sooner rather than later, because judging by Tottenham’s last few results in the league, they need all the help they can get.
