Taking to Twitter, reliable football.london reporter Alasdair Gold has shared a ‘boost’ for Tottenham Hotspur and Nuno Espirito Santo after a big Friday development.
The Lowdown: Nuno suffers international break mess…
It’s safe to say the last international break was one of Tottenham’s worst in recent memory.
During that period, Nuno was dealt a plethora of injury worries to the likes of Son Heung-min, Ryan Sessegnon, Oliver Skipp and Steven Bergwijn who all picked up knocks representing their countries.
As well as this, Davinson Sanchez, Giovani Lo Celso and Cristian Romero were at the centre of a South American fiasco after they travelled with their nations to red-listed countries.
The trio, as a result, had to quarantine at a 10-day training camp in Croatia before returning to Tottenham and being made available again to Nuno.
Now, as another international break lingers, it appears Tottenham’s under-fire boss is set for a much-needed boost.
The Latest: Gold shares ‘boost’ for Spurs…
As per reliable reporter Gold, sharing a confirmed Friday development, the government have announced that players travelling to red-listed zones won’t need to self-isolate upon returning if they are fully vaccinated.
The journalist says this ‘will boost Spurs’ and explains exactly why on Twitter.
“The government exemption for vaccinated players playing in red listed countries will boost Spurs this international break after the previous mess,” said Gold.
“Understand all of their four called-up South Americans will be fine to train and play on their return.”
The Verdict: Huge…
Given the selection headache it caused Nuno last time, this comes as a much-needed boost for the 47-year-old as he remains under fire for his start to life at Spurs.
There have even been murmurs of possible N17 managerial replacements already and it’s safe to say he needs all the help he can get with his job far from safe.
