Jose Mourinho knocked Tottenham's three stars out of the Europa League squad but one star came back
Tottenham Hotspur boss has decided his Europa League squad for the group stages of the competition and three players are absent
Jose Mourinho has knocked Paulo Gazzaniga and Gedson Fernandes out of his Tottenham Hotspur squad for the Europa League group stage.
Tottenham have too many 'untrained locally' players in their squad and Mourinho has had to make a tough decision when it comes to eliminating the Argentine and the Portuguese.
Spurs' problem is complicated by the fact that Eric Dier, although an English international and born in England, is not considered a homegrown by either UEFA or the Premier League because of his years in Portugal.
Ben Davies and Matt Doherty are considered Premier League homegrowns but not by UEFA because the former player spent his academy years in Wales - then not affiliated with the English FA - while The Irishman only missed the required time, in months. , was required to train in the UK before his 21st birthday.
The arrival of Sergio Reguilon and Carlos Vinicius forced Mourinho to free up two more gaps and that meant Gazzaniga and Gedson were the only two players absent from the current main squad.
Tottenham's Premier League squad has space for both foreign signings if one comes in January.
Gazzaniga was involved in leaving the club during the transfer window, while Gedson on loan has struggled to secure a regular place in Mourinho's squad today.

Homegrown Alfie Whiteman replaced Gazzaniga's place in the European squad.
Danny Rose, who had not trained with the first team, was also not included in Mourinho's Europa League squad as the club wanted to move him away with only eight months left on his contract.
Juan Foyth was not on the Europa League list before moving to Villarreal on loan, but Ryan Sessegnon was dropped from the squad, he was registered in the play-off against Maccabi Haifa as he had moved to Hoffenheim under loan form. Good game His disqualification as a "association-trained" player meant that Jack Clarke could now be registered for the team.
He's not on the B list, meaning you can sign up 24 hours before the game, as Japhet Tanganga can, as he hasn't been at the club for two years.
Clarke can still be on loan in the domestic window, given Birmingham's interest, but the move allows him to score a few minutes in the Europa League if needed.
