Pellegrino on Austin's World Cup hopes

  Pellegrino on Austin's World Cup hopes Charlie Austin has been in exceptional form for the Saints in the past couple of weeks scoring three goals in two starts against Everton and Bournemouth. Southampton boss Maurico Pellegrino has not accepted that Austin does not have the technical qualities to compete at international level with England. Pellegrino admitted that he hopes that Austin goes to Russia adding that it’s not his decision on who does and doesn’t go. Speaking to the Daily Echo about Austin’s prospect he said “For me Charlie is not a player who has got technical limitations.” “Everybody has got limitations. As a person I have got a lot of limitations. Everybody has got limitations.” “I think also you have to know which is your main quality and your character to be a top player.” Austin has had to be patient this season with opportunities limited having made just two starts in the Premier League and another in the Carabao Cup defeat earlier in the season. Pellegrino added: “Charlie has character and is competitive and now is training better and for me he deserves this opportunity to play because he was training much better than at the beginning, and this is the consequence of his job.” “After everybody has got strengths and weaknesses, but hopefully Charlie can continue in this moment and the team can improve.”” After his recent form there have been some calls that Austin should be in with a chance of going to the World Cup with England something which Pellegrino talked about. “It’s not my concern at this moment.” “Obviously now England has got a top striker in the national team and you have to do a really good job.” “We have to be patient with the player because football is changing every single week.” “Hopefully Charlie can continue working with humility because every single player has to use the training session to be better.

Danny Rose says Tottenham must now focus on improving on their poor league form after qualifying for the Champions League last 16. "We have to get our Premier League form back on track because we've not been good enough recently," he said.

"It's nice that the Champions League is over for a month or two now and we have to get our Premier League form back on track because we've not been good enough recently," said Rose.

"We're looking forward to concentrating on that and climbing the league.

"We know in the changing that we have not been good enough, we've not started games well enough but we have every belief that we can put that right this weekend."

Spurs have dropped to sixth in the Premier League table and are 18 points behind leaders Manchester City, but Rose revealed he has told his team-mates that they should use last season's form to inspire a revival.

"Since the manager has been here we have always had a good December and January," he said.

"I said to the guys before the game, this time last year we lost to Man United and after that we went on a great run throughout Christmas and January."

Rose had to come off during the victory on Wednesday night with an eye injury and was visibly frustrated at being substituted, but the England left-back admitted the decision was ultimately probably the right one.

"I wasn't happy but I could tell from the manager's reaction that I had to come off," he said.

"He said straight away: 'you're coming off', and I was disappointed but it's probably the right decision and hopefully I can recover now and be part of the squad on the weekend."
