Giovani Lo Celso will remain at Hotspur Way during the international break after Argentina confirmed he was ruled out of their World Cup qualifiers against Ecuador and Bolivia in the coming days.
Lo Celso missed Tottenham’s Old Trafford mauling of Manchester United on Sunday with a thigh problem – although it remains unclear how long the midfielder will be sidelined for.
The fact that the 24-year-old was on doubtful for the game suggests that he could return sooner rather than later.
And when taking to Instagram on Wednesday morning, the Spurs man didn’t seem to concerned over the muscle issue, so hopefully it isn’t too serious and Lo Celso is fit and available for selection when Tottenham return to action against West Ham on Sunday week.
Lo Celso’s message, translated from Spanish, said: “As it is known a muscle injury did not allow me to be with the group. Thank you for the messages of support. Come on Argentina.”
