Spurs Boss Mauricio Pochettino Hates International Duties

Spurs Boss Mauricio Pochettino Hates International Duties
Mauricio Pochettino admits it is a source of frustration that some of his Tottenham players have been called up for international duty despite recent injury problems.
Christian Eriksen made his comeback from a month-long lay-off on Oct. 20, following an abdominal issue, and Dele Alli has suffered two hamstring injuries this term, so Pochettino has used the pair sparingly during a demanding fortnight featuring five matches.

Eric Dier has missed the last three games with a thigh problem and only returned to training this week. Yet all three players have been selected by their national squads.
"It's true if you [ask] me, I'd prefer all my international players stay here and rest for these two weeks without competition," said Pochettino. "But that is impossible.

"That's why we were talking before about Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen, if they'll be involved in international duty. It's play, play, then move there and train in a different way and play again.

"Then if you see our schedule for the next few months, it will be so tough. How do you manage that? We understand we maybe need to sacrifice some players in some games so they can cope with the demand in the future.

"If [Eric] is fit and the national team calls him, he needs to go, and of course he can play if he's fit. If I decide not to play him -- if he's fit but I decide not to put him in the starting XI or in the squad -- and he's fit, you need to give him permission to go."
