Lots of Tottenham fans have been reacting to a rather worrying update, as reports claim the players want Mauricio Pochettino to give them more rest.
Managers like Pochettino, Jürgen Klopp and Marco Silva are well known for their high-tempo styles of management, but one report has claimed the intensity of Pochettino’s regime is damaging the players.
According to The Times, Tottenham players are demanding more rest, as several first team stars rushed back from World Cup duty to start the Premier League season.
This time of the season is extremely busy, and the players are basically guaranteed to play two matches per week from now until the new year.
Pochettino’s side have lost three games in a row for the first time since he arrived in North London, and it’s certainly fair to say the players looked tired against Inter Milan.
Lots of fans have been reacting to this rather worrying report, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
Spurs shouldn't release any player to their countries at the next international break if its not a meaningful game or the players are not 100% fit.

If true then he should listen to them! They give everything for him but he should let them rest

Then they should pull out or be pulled out of the next international break.

Everyone was saying it will happen. Seriously. Everyone. And instead of the club seeing it and making sure depth was a point of strength, they did nothing. I understand stadium and all althatbbut at the moment we have nothing to show. Not results nor stadium. It’s embarrassing

Pep rightly held back sterling and Poch should have done the same with kane and Ali
