I am not going to give the team away but I think it is clear with the Burnley game that I was planning on giving him a rest,” he told reporters at Cobham Training Centre. “It was more because of the journey to Burnley and the journey to Russia and back.

Timo has played a lot of games. It is always a balance in my head between players playing a lot of games and enjoying it with finding their way in the team and making relationships, finding their way in the league if they are new in the league.
