Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni is expecting to have Aston Villa pair Emi Buendia and Emi Martinez for all three World Cup qualifiers during the international break.
And a number of Villa supporters have been quick to give their thoughts to the latest update on social media.
Villa released a statement over the weekend regarding Buendia and Martinez, claiming the pair would be available for matches against Venezuela and Brazil but not a third against Bolivia.
Should Villa fine Buendia and Martinez for deciding to go?
No, definitely not
The arrangements Villa thought they had agreed on would mean both would miss one Premier League game against Chelsea due to quarantine restrictions.
However, Scaloni, talking to the media, posted on Twitter by Roy Nemer, believes he will have both Buendia and Martinez available for selection for all three qualifiers.
“We gave the list for the three matches and there’s no doubt about it. The players are here for the three matches.”
Villa fans react
@villareport shared Scaloni’s comments on Twitter regarding the Villa duo on Wednesday evening. This is what these Villa supporters had to say in reply, with many not exactly thrilled.
“This could get nasty”
“Selfish beyond belief”
“Very poor from Argentina if they’ve already gone back on the agreement.”
“What a terrible manager and a coach to put two of his players in such a position.”
