Stoke v Tottenham A defeat for Spurs at Stoke this Sunday in the Premier League and the pressure on Juande Ramos will intensify.

Werder Bremen midfielder Torsten Frings has revealed that he is considering quitting Germany after sitting on the bench for the recent World Cup qualifiers.

Coach Joachim Low opted to play Stuttgart’s Thomas Hitzlsperger in the holding midfield position against Russia and Wales.

“Jogi Low told me on Friday that I wouldn’t be playing,” Frings told Bild.

“That hurts, but it can happen sometimes. But he told me that he was still planning with me, that my experience makes me important etc.

“But he didn’t follow his words with actions and that hurts double.

“We spoke before the Russia game and then again before the Wales game and what happened? Nothing.

“I didn’t get to play and didn’t even get the chance to warm up against Wales. That was the worst part, it was humiliating.”

Frings admitted that he would be seriously considering quitting the national team as a result of his treatment.

“I can’t count that out,” he said when asked about quitting.

“I am thinking of retiring from international football, not because I am sulking, but because several things have become clear to me over the past few days.

“Such a decision needs time and that could take a few days or weeks. I have to ask everyone to be patient with me.”
