The 35-year-old is unhappy playing three games in six days.
Tottenham Hotspur face a period of three matches in six days and manager Andre Villas-Boas has criticised the fixture pile-up and says it could end players’ careers.
Spurs will play Tromso in the Europa League on Thursday, before lining up against Cardiff City on Sunday and the facing Aston Villa in the League Cup on the Tuesday.
It means the Portuguese ace’s squad depth will have to be utilised, but Villas-Boas thinks it could be dangerous for the players.
“How can a game be scheduled immediately after two days? It’s putting the players’ careers at risk,” the 35-year-old was quoted by the Independent.
“I find it absolutely incredible we have to risk injuries to our players in a game on Tuesday. The second day of recovery is the most dangerous for a player to pick up an injury. If this is not taken into account I think it’s bad.”
Tottenham have started the 2013/14 season well, qualifying comfortably for the Europa League and also winning three of the club’s four Premier League matches.
The north London side were extremely busy in the transfer market and bought in seven new stars at a cost that exceeded £105m.
However, the £85.3m the club received for Gareth Bale – along with the sale of others such as Clint Dempsey, Steven Caulker and Tom Huddlestone – meant that Spurs actually made a profit from their dealings.
AVB will be wanting the side to continue their good form into the Europa League; a competition Tottenham have an extremely realistic chance of winning.
