Tottenham are set to face Newcastle United on Sunday, October 14 once Premier League action resumes after the international break.
And ahead of the game head coach Nuno Espirito provided the latest injury updates and team news.
On Steven Bergwijn, Spurs boss said:
“He joined us yesterday. He is totally integrated with the group. Trained well yesterday, trained well today. No pain.
“So it’s about getting back to his highest levels of fitness, but he’s in the process of it.
“We don’t know, we don’t know, we don’t know (if Newcastle games is soon for him), because like I said, first of all we have to be everybody together, then we will assess and prepare and decide.”
On Cristian Romero and Giovani Lo Celso‘s international duty with Argentina, Nuno said:
“During an international break, always these situations happen. Some players play a lot of games, some play don’t even get one minute.
“And that is what causes disruption. Because after that, when you receive them, some of them come very happy because they achieve fantastic things like Hugo did, some of them come really said like Regi and Bryan, some like you said with a lot of minutes on their legs, some just go there, sleep and eat.
“It causes a lot of problems. But what’s happening now, what we want is for them to return as soon as possible, like tomorrow, some of them already joined us. But it’s always disruption.”
More on the four South American players, the Portuguese manager added:
“Yeah, they are travelling now. They will join us tomorrow and then we’ll see. They we’ll see. The reports that we have is that they finished their games well.
“Some of them played 90 minutes, Davinson Sanchez no, but what we are expecting is for them to join us and then we’ll see.”
