Tottenham’s Vlad Chiriches has been ruled out of Romania’s World Cup qualifier with Greece later this week after being substituted during the club’s 1-0 defeat at home to Newcastle. The defender was withdrawn at half time during the loss and head coach Andre Villas-Boas confirmed later that he had suffered a suspected broken nose.
As yet there is no confirmation from the club as to how long Vlad is expected to stay on the sidelines but Spurs now have a break until the 24th of November when they tackle Manchester City at The Etihad. Could we have another masked player at the Lane or will AVB switch to one of the obvious replacements?
How much of a blow could this potentially be? Would you prefer to see Younes Kaboul take over on a regular basis?
