Toby Alderweireld admits spending time with Belgium provides a “nice” change in scenery
Toby Alderweireld has been one of the starts that has struggled this season at Tottenham.
The Belgian is a free agent at the end of the season, but just hasn’t been at his best for Spurs.
The 30-year-old has had two woeful performances over the past week but is still part of the Belgium national side.
Alderweireld couldn’t keep Bayern Munich from scoring seven past us and Brighton also beat us 3-0.
Spurs have been in a rut since the start of the campaign but will have a couple of weeks to get the house in order.
Alderweireld spoke about Tottenham’s current plight and believed things would work out. The Belgian was quoted by DH as saying (h/t Football.london):
“A career is made of ups and downs. A few months ago, we were playing in the Champions League finals. It’s proof that everything can change very quickly, whether it’s good or bad.”
The 30-year-old added that the team didn’t need to “panic” but added that the national side provided a welcome relief away from Spurs:
“All we need to do is win a few games to get back on track, but I’m not hiding that being with the national team is a nice change of scenery.”
Belgian pair to return early
Jan Vertonghen has also struggled alongside Alderweireld this season, but the pair should return from their trip early.
Football.london reports that Belgium’s final game of this break is on Sunday, and the pair should be back at Hotspur War earlier than the other players.
The experience of the Belgian pair should have helped us during this tough time, and it will be interesting to see how they perform in the next game.

Alderweireld is correct in suggesting that things can change quickly in football, and hopefully, we go on a string of wins after the international break.
