As Spurs get ready to return to Premier League football this weekend, the last few games of the season are vital but is it a good thing that the club, if not the majority of the players, have been inactive for nearly two weeks?
January signing Lewis Holtby certainly seems to think so as the German spoke to the press this week.
“These 12 days of international break are really good for us to clear everybody’s head; to go to the national team and see something else. We will bounce back, especially in the next game,” Holtby said.
Tottenham head to Swansea on Saturday on the back of two defeats but Lewis is adamant that the club will hold on to its Champions League place.
“We can definitely do it. We had 12 unbeaten league games, we had a very good run. And now we’ve had three disappointing games,” the German added.
“There are still a lot of games to play and I think we have the right mentality and the right quality to play Champions League next season.”
A positive result at the Liberty Stadium is vital but has this latest international break come at just the right time for the club?
