Gareth Southgate is worried about England’s squad’s long-term health and this term, life at Tottenham frustrates Harry Winks.
About playing time at Tottenham, Harry Winks is getting constantly nervous as he expects to be in the starting XI of England for the European Championship next year.
Last season, the 24-year-old midfielder made 31 Premier League starts, the most he has ever managed for a single campaign in his career.
He has, however, appeared this term in just half of Spurs’ eight league matches, with Tanguy Ndombele and new signing Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg featuring in each.
When asked if he needs Spurs boss Jose Mourinho to afford him more minutes, he told reporters: “Definitely. My situation at Tottenham is difficult at the moment.”
“It’s important that I keep fighting and working as hard as I can to stay in the squad and to stay in the team.”
“Every time I get the opportunity for England, I love it, it’s a great place to play football here. It’s free and the lads get on really well, it’s a great place to come to.”
“I want to be a part of that in Euros and I want to be in the starting XI in the Euros as well.”
