Tottenham Hotspur’s Dejan Kulusevski has expressed his unhappiness over the possibility of Sweden missing out on the European championship next summer.

Sweden have lost three of their five matches in the qualifiers, leaving them third in the group table, seven points behind Belgium and Austria. Janne Andersson changed tactics in the national team’s defeat against the latter in September.

During an interview with SVT, the Tottenham player has talked about his ‘disappointment’ over the loss to Austria and also explained why the changes didn’t help Sweden.

“We had a training session and went into the match against Austria. This session was the only time we practiced playing a bit differently… Maybe that’s why it only lasted one half against Austria,” he said.

“We tried to change the system earlier but reverted to the old one very quickly. But the old system didn’t work either, so recently it was like ‘okay, we’ll meet in the middle’.”

The 23-year-old was honest in admitting that his country would have had better chances of making it to the Euros if Andersson had decided to change the tactics much earlier.

“Absolutely, we could have done that. But now it’s too late, so just forget it and see what we did wrong and try to find a way forward,” Kulusevski explained.

After the former Juventus man made these comments, SVT got in touch with Andersson for a response, and he stated “I can’t agree” with the ‘criticism’ made against him by the Tottenham player.

Sweden will take on Moldova and Belgium in this month’s international break.
