Chris Coleman is a concerned boss when Papa Bouba Diop plays for Senegal.
Chris Coleman admits he may have to be more stringent when Fulham midfielder Papa Bouba Diop goes on international duty.
The Senegal powerhouse will miss The Cottagers' trip to Aston Villa on Saturday, live on PremPlus, with a thigh injury.
Though the complaint was collected in the win over Charlton Athletic, Coleman feels it is a knock-on effect from Diop playing for his country.
According to Coleman, it is a persistent issue with the 28-year-old playing for Senegal and he may take steps to monitor it more closely.
"Every time he comes back from Senegal, there's a problem," bemoaned Coleman.
"I've told him I won't let him go unless he returns okay.
"We may have to send a minder to see what they are doing to him."
