Tottenham Hotspur duo Yves Bissouma and Fraser Forster to fly back to London on Tuesday

Tottenham Hotspur duo Yves Bissouma and Fraser Forster will fly back to London on Tuesday from South Korea, according to football.london, after being sidelined due to COVID. The two got back positive results after the whole squad were tested.

Bissouma and Forster have been isolated since testing positive last Tuesday. The Malian and Englishman have missed the whole pre-season tour due to their unfortunate illness and will leave the country without getting any time on the pitch.

The duo have been allowed fitness equipment in their room in order to maintain some sort of fitness. But the whole purpose of the pre-season is to get players back into shape with rigorous training.

The rest of the squad will fly out Sunday and Bissouma and Forster will remain in South Korea for a few more days. The team is set to return to training on Tuesday, which the COVID-tested pair are likely to miss as well.

Pre-season is important for new signings?

Tottenham have signed several new players this summer and the tour to South Korea was a chance for our manager to look at each and every player. Unfortunately, Conte hasn’t been able to do that with Bissouma and Forster.

Apart from regaining match fitness, the friendlies also provide an opportunity for the new signings to build an understanding with other players on the pitch. Off-the-pitch bonding is also a vital aspect for team chemistry.

The pair that missed out due to COVID now are a week behind in their preparations to the new season. Conte will have to put them through their paces when they return to London.

Tottenham’s midfield has some exciting options for next season. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Rodrigo Bentancur, Oliver Skipp and youngster Pape Matar Sarr are all in the squad for now.

Bissouma will have his work cut out to challenge for a place in Conte’s XI. Setbacks such as these do the player and the manager no good. Fans will hope the Malian returns and can show his qualities in North London.
