Tottenham manager Nuno Espirito Santo speaks out on problems with international breaks

According to Evening Standard, Tottenham manager Nuno Espirito Santo expressed concerns about the international break. With another one set to come in October, a similar situation could be on the cards unless some solution is put on the table.

Even before the international break started, Spurs and other Premier League clubs were aware of the fact that South American players would be travelling to red list countries and on their return, would have to quarantine. Hence, Brazilian players were not released while only the four Argentine players from the Premier League made the trip.

Matters got more complicated when those players were ‘detained’ during the game. Regardless of that, the players are now serving mandatory quarantine before they return to the UK. Spurs will now be without the services of Davinson Sanchez, Cristian Romero and Giovani Lo Celso for another week or so. Nuno gave his opinion on the same.

“It’s confusing for everybody. Because we don’t have much news from the governing bodies on what we should do, what to expect in the next international break. This is the main concern for us, that things can be solved for the future. But it’s really difficult to understand. Every time that an international break comes around it’s always a concern for us because you cannot control [the situations].”

Nuno wants solutions for future breaks

With another international break in a month’s time, things could again get complicated and Nuno wants the organizations to figure out a solution.

“There is nothing much more that I can say that will avoid or find a solution for this problem. With FIFA, UEFA and the Premier League, they know that we have a big, big issue among the clubs, so I hope they solve it.

This international break has been really detrimental for the club as they are now without key players. The same debate will rise again in a month and something needs to be done by then. Either the countries need to be lifted off the red list or the players will need to be exempt from the quarantine rules.

For now, the focus should be on the London derby this weekend as Spurs get ready for their game against Crystal Palace, where they would be looking to continue their unbeaten run.
