Tottenham stars reportedly believe that the intensity of the club’s training schedule has played a role in a poor start to the season.
According to the Daily Mail, the Spurs squad feel the schedule is impacting their performances on the pitch and some players are “unhappy” with the amount of time they are granted by manager Mauricio Pochettino.
The report explains that the Argentinian boss has stepped up the amount of time players spend at training and there is very little free time.
It is understood that the squad’s next official day off will not be until Monday 28 October, with three games sandwiched in-between then against Watford, Red Star Belgrade and Liverpool.
The North London club have certainly seen standards slip recently and they need to find a response on the pitch after the international break.
Spurs have already been dumped out of the Carabao Cup and been humiliated by Bayern Munich in the Champions League group stages, while they have also lost three of their opening eight league games.
There certainly appears to be unrest in the Spurs camp and this latest report may explain why certain individuals have looked well off their usual high standard so far this season.
Pochettino has done a magnificent job since he took charge in 2014, but he’s at a real point during his reign and needs his players to dig him out of trouble during the next month’s fixtures.
It looks like there needs to be an injection of fresh faces around the squad during the next year, as a number of players have gone so close to winning a trophy at Spurs without getting over the line.
