Tottenham boss Nuno says Newcastle starting XI won't travel for Vitesse clash

Tottenham boss Nuno says he will take a shadow squad to Europa Conference League opponents Vitesse tomorrow.

Nuno revealed that the starting XI from the Newcastle win over the weekend will not travel.

They will train with coach, Ian Cathro instead.

Asked whether the outfield players from the Newcastle win will stay at home? "Yes."

He was then asked if he has two teams - one for the Premier League and one for Europe?

"No, it's not fair to say," said Nuno.

"It's a situation we decided in this specific week. We consider this is the best way to go and compete well tomorrow and compete [at West Ham] well on Sunday.

"There is no difference. There is a squad and we have to make decisions. Decisions on who goes, who travels, who stays and who needs rest. Who needs days to recover better. All things we have to manage inside of the football club."
