The information about the return via Croatia was given by Alejandro Martinez, Emiliano’s brother.

Conditions set by Aston Villa. The Argentine Football Association revealed that Martinez and Buendia were released from the national team, unlike the Tottenham players. But when Lo Celso and Romero traveled to the playoffs without the London club’s approval, both would be penalized once they returned.
