Radu Drăgușin is waiting to make his first start for Tottenham Hotspur since joining them from Genoa in the winter market.

The Romania international has clocked in eight minutes from three games so far for Spurs and was left on the bench in their last two league matches. There are concerns in his country over his selection for the Euros in the summer.

Fanatik interviewed agent Victor Becali and asked if the Tottenham defender risks missing out on the European championship.

When responding to that, Becali insisted that Romania manager Edward Iordănescu has to pick the 22-year-old, due to a lack of quality options.

“There have always been and will always be problems, but the important thing is that we are there, that we have qualified,” he said

“Of course, now the selector’s problems… All selectors, when they arrive and when they settle in you know what they say… ‘With me, players who don’t play don’t come to the squad!’

“But all the managers have had problems since we don’t have such a large pool of valuable players. For example, this boy, Dragușin… If he doesn’t play or plays less, because it’s normal after all, he went to a new team, he went to another league, a team that was formed, he needs time to become a starter… My opinion is that you can’t not call him up to the national team.”

It’s to be noted that Becali doesn’t manage the Tottenham player, and he’s represented by Florin Manea. The former was only giving his take on which players could be called up by the national team manager.

Last week, Manea stated he’s not worried about his client’s situation at Tottenham and has backed him to “play enough” games to be ready for the Euros.

Drăgușin will be hoping to get some minutes when Spurs host Crystal Palace on Saturday.
