Report: Spurs boss Nuno handed double blow ahead of Rennes clash
Spurs will reportedly be without Son Heung-min and Eric Dier for Thursday’s Europa Conference League meeting with Rennes on Thursday.
Tottenham forward Son picked up a calf strain whilst on international duty with South Korea earlier this month.
Meanwhile, Dier limped off with a dead leg in Saturday’s 3-0 Premier League defeat away at Crystal Palace.
According to the Evening Standard, neither player will be available for Nuno as Spurs take part in their first ECL group game.
Indeed, the England international could potentially miss out on Sunday’s meeting with Chelsea too.
However, Japhet Tanganga will be part of the Tottenham squad in France, added the report.
The Spurs academy graduate is suspended for the game with Chelsea after being sent off against Palace following two quickfire yellow cards.
By then, Cristian Romero and Davinson Sanchez could potentially be available as they’re reportedly set to arrive in the UK on Saturday.
The Spurs defensive duo, plus Giovani Lo Celso, have been training in green-listed Croatia following their return to Europe from South America.
Romero and Lo Celso featured for Argentina in World Cup qualifying, while Sanchez played for Colombia.
