“But they already knew they were going” fans react as Tottenham set to fine players
By Bruce Grove -

Tottenham duo Cristian Romero and Giovani Lo Celso are set to be fined by the club after they defied orders to travel for international duty.

There had been a club vs country row between Premier League clubs and the red list countries before this international break.

The clubs attempted to lobby the government to grant exemptions to players travelling to the countries for the latest international matches so that they won’t have to quarantine for 10 days on their return.

However, the UK government refused to grant them such an exemption and the clubs decided together not to release their players to the red list nation.

But Romero, Lo Celso and other Argentine players in the EPL defied the orders from their club and they travelled.

Interestingly, their match against Brazil was abandoned because they were accused of breaking quarantine rules.

The Telegraph is now reporting that Tottenham will fine their players who went for the matches.

Matt Law posted a link to the article on his Twitter account and here are some reactions:

Levy clawing every penny he can back. Probably still fuming he had to buy a cheap player in the window….

This is typical of the kind of chaos and obvious lack of diligence on the football side that is defining Spurs under ENIC.

Making it up as they go along with the team, no plan and no cohesive transfer policy whatsoever. Mitchell wanted one of those and was shown the door immediately. I think Redknapp junior nailed it with his “clowns’ comment. Everyone in the game knows why we don’t win stuff, the people running the club are total pillocks…

Great to know a call up for Argentina can cure any injuries players have.

Surely someone in the Spurs admin team must/should have known that UK is on Brazil’s red list so that (if the so-called agreement to miss the 3rd game is true) they’d have just been able to return straight after the 1st game for their UK quarantine?!

Do Spurs even have an admin team? Perhaps Daniel’s got the tea lady doing it to save a few quid…

Somebody should ask Sir Alex how he handled Ryan Giggs and Wales. 🤔
