Gedson Fernandes and Paulo Gazzaniga left out of Totteham squad for UEFA Europa League

As reported by the Express, Tottenham Hotspur have named their 25-man squad for the UEFA Europa League group stages, leaving out midfielder Gedson Fernandes and goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga.

Tottenham entered the Europa League in the second qualifying round, where they saw off Lokomotiv Plovdiv and then beat KF Shkendija in the third round. Facing off against Maccabi Haifa in the playoff stages, Jose Mourinho & co. hammered them 7-2 at home to book their place in the group stage.

Paulo Gazzaniga left out of the UEFA Europa League squad

Spurs have been drawn in Group J of the Europa League, alongside Belgian outfit Royal Antwerp, Austrian sideLASK and Ludogorets of Bulgaria.

And the club has now named the 25-man squad for the group stages of the competition, which sees Fernandes and Gazzaniga getting dropped from the list. (h/t Express)

Having signed six new players in the summer, Tottenham found themselves with more non-homegrown players than allowed by UEFA. As a result, Jose Mourinho had to take the harsh decision of leaving out Gazzaniga and Fernandes from the squad. (h/t Express)

However, it shouldn’t come as a major surprise that it is these two players who have been axed. Gazzaniga has dropped down as the third-choice goalkeeping option following Joe Hart’s arrival on a free transfer. The Argentine was linked with an exit all summer but ended up staying put at the club.

Fernandes, on the other hand, has featured just once for Tottenham this season. The on-loan Benfica midfielder’s only appearance came in the Carabao Cup clash against Chelsea.

Apart from these two players, Danny Rose, exiled from the first-team, also doesn’t make the cut for the Europa League. Ryan Sessegnon, who has left the club for a loan spell at Hoffenheim, has also been removed from the list. Youngster Alfie Whitman has been handed a spot in the squad list. (h/t Football.london)
