After the QPR game Harry insisted that he let the likes of Corluka, Pienaar and Bassong go out on loan simply because they wanted to and denied that the decision has had any influence on the club’s recent run of results.
Watching in Germany however, Vedran Corluka has suggested that lack of squad rotation has been at the core of Spurs’ problems in recent weeks.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if they finished sixth,” Charlie said.
“They didn’t rotate enough. They don’t have depth on the bench.
“That’s the main problem. I watched almost every Spurs game and they played them all with the same 11, 12, 13 players and that’s why the players now are really tired.”
Corluka went on to add that a club of Tottenham’s stature should be in the Champions League
“Tottenham, for me, had one of the best teams in England and of course it will be an unsuccessful season if they don’t go to the Champions League,” he added.
“I don’t know what the chairman will do if they don’t qualify. I know only that it will be an unsuccessful season.”
Spurs’ major unbeaten runs have been carried out with a largely settled side however, so is Corluka’s assertion correct?
