Martinez demands Trinidad treat Scotland right this time.

Martinez demands Trinidad treat Scotland right this time.
Swansea Evening Post.


Swansea City have been promised that Jason Scotland will play a part after the striker was called up for another round-the-world trip with Trinidad & Tobago.

Scotland told the Evening Post less than a fortnight ago that he was delighted not to be part of the T&T squad for the World Cup qualifiers against Guatemala this Saturday and the United States one week today.

Scotland claimed he had been treated ridiculously by his country after heading across the Atlantic last month despite not being fully fit and then sitting on the bench throughout two qualifying games.

Swansea's star frontman was not named in the party for the Soca Warriors' forthcoming fixtures, but he has been drafted in to cover for injured St Johnstone forward Collin Samuel and flew home yesterday.

The late call-up has not gone down particularly well with Roberto Martinez, who was frustrated that Scotland lost fitness in the last international break.

But Martinez has taken steps to ensure the 29-year-old returns in good condition this time around.

"We all know what happened last time Jason was called up," said the Swansea boss, "and it's important to make sure it doesn't happen again.

"I have spoken to the Trinidad & Tobago federation and we will be working closely together to monitor Jason's situation.

"They have guaranteed me that he will play some part, although I don't know whether it will be two minutes or two lots of 90 minutes.

"But they have guaranteed me he will play a role and that's good news because going all that way to sit on the bench for two games is just a waste of time.

"It is not only the games. We are also going to be on top of exactly what Jason does on the training ground.

"He can't miss out on certain things in this period and certain guidelines have been set out.

"We are working together to make sure the intensity is right for Jason and we're going to be getting a daily report on what he is doing."

T & T host the Dominican Republic in a friendly this evening but Scotland is unlikely to feature given his late summons.

It is in the competitive games where Martinez expects him to be involved.

The Spaniard blamed air miles for two below-par Scotland performances after his previous call-up, and is determined to avoid a repeat ahead of Swansea's game at Ipswich in 10 days' time.

"We are hoping Jason will come back ready mentally and physically to play and with a little extra confidence having done well for his country," Martinez added.

"We all want Jason to play as well as he did against Wolves on a consistent basis.

"That's his challenge and, when he goes on international trips, we need to make sure they are a help not a negative.

"We need to make sure he is treated the way he deserves to be treated."

These managers and them making sure and protect their interests.......

Sunderland sent down a personal physio for Kenwyne while Swansea sent Scotland with a dietary and fitness regime so that he dont suffer too much with our low intensity training....lol

How TTFF could GUARANTEE a player who is not an automatic pick will get a run is beyond me.

Dat is dotishness.  Dem underminin de coach by doin dat and me eh care who de coach is or whether we or dem feel he incompetent.  If dey feel he incompetent, den fire him, but de selection of de team i.e. who plays should be the sole purview of the coaching staff.

Martinez outta order and de TTFF wuss fuh accomodatin dat bullshit.

fully agree with that...

i mighta understand if it was a friendly we talking about where the TTFF could say the man hadda get cap (like when other federations do when a player is undecided between countries or needs caps for work permits etc).

but most definitely not a world cup qualifier. the coach has to make that decision based on what he sees in training, what his system and tactics is and lastly depending on what actually goes on during the game.

suppose we're holding onto a 1-0 lead against the USA and stern and glenn are having the games of their lives. Does the coach have to sub on Scotland because the TTFF promised?? steups

What allyuh worried about?  Since when has the TTFF EVER come through on ANY promise they've ever made?  Obviously they just telling the player/club/coach what they want to hear to get the player released for these important 2 matches in case they need him.  And if Scotland doh get a sweat we will deal with the consequences later.

this is no different than telling Latas he coming down to coach and then when he reach he stuck running laps for Anton

       I agree with both of you,since when the TTFF have to guarantee players playing time to get them,times really change,this going public/the media to gain selection/playing time screwing up our Football,the TTFF making promisses to get the players but the final decisions are with the Technical staff.

LOL so now club mamagers  trying to put  pressure on national coaches to have their players sweat...Yuh think club managers will do that with countries like England, France, Brazil etc..Now i am not a big fan of our national coach or the TTFF..but no club manager should try and get in our coach game decisions..what if Stern and Glen or Stern and Roberts is playing very well in the game and should still remain in the game..then scotland will most likely sit on the bench for the whole game...Martinez cant say shite bout dat !
