Altnham Head Coach Nuno Espírito Santo Expressing that the club is worried that there will be further chaos on the next international match day, and called for FIFA Provide answers to the “big questions” of players being called up to participate in matches in redlisted countries.
Spurs‘South American Young Loscelso, Christian Romero and Davinson sanchez Training in Croatia to avoid being quarantined when returning to the UK, they will miss the Derby on Saturday at the Crystal Palace and the Europa League visit to Rennes on Thursday.
The Colombian defender Sanchez and Argentina have accepted the call for World Cup qualifiers in the red list countries. If they return directly to London, they will have to spend 10 days in a quarantine hotel.
Unless their country is removed from the red list or an exemption can be arranged, they may face the same situation in the international competition next month, which worries Nuno.
“It confuses everyone,” the Spurs manager said. “Because we don’t have much news from the governing body on what we should do and what will happen on the next International Game Day.
“This is our main concern, and it can be solved in the future. But it’s really hard to understand.
“Every time an international match day comes, we are always worried because you can’t control [the situations].
“I can say that there is nothing to avoid or find a solution to this problem. FIFA, UEFA and the Premier League, they know we have a big problem between the clubs, so I hope they can solve this Problem. I hope they can solve it, but nothing I have to say will bring a solution.
“FIFA is the governing body of football, so we hope that FIFA will give the answer and tell us what we should do, because not only us, but all the clubs in the Premier League.
“This happened to South American players, but suddenly it could happen to European players, so imagine our England international can’t join the England team because they will go to the red list countries. Big problem.”
It is believed that the Spurs fined the three for accepting a call against the club’s wishes, but Nuno refused to criticize them publicly.
“When a player is called up to play for his national team, this is one of the most important things a player has, and we need to understand this,” he said.
“At the same time we need to understand that this can happen to any of our players, not just South American players. Our European players may suddenly fall into the same situation.”
“Because this is a pandemic, no one can control it. Not only that, we will solve all problems and situations among ourselves.”
Nuno revealed that the three will return to the club the day before the game against Chelsea on September 19, which may make them suspicious of facing the Blues.
At the same time, Sun Xiangmin seemed to be skeptical of Saturday’s game at Selhurst Park after a calf injury in the international competition.
“Like some of our players, he had some problems when he came back (coming back),” Nuno said.
“Sony’s situation is not very good, but let us wait for the club to make a proper announcement and better explain to you what kind of injuries he has.”
When asked if Sun Zhengyi will be out for a long time, Nuno replied: “I don’t know. Let’s wait and see. The doctor will make the correct diagnosis.”
Oliver Skipp, Steven Bergwijn and Ryan Sessegnon will be evaluated before Saturday, but Nuno said Tanguy Ndombele can play.
