Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez has added his backing to calls for a change in the scheduling of international fixtures.
His comments come in the wake of being beaten 2-0 by Swansea last Saturday - just days after seven Latics players were involved on international duty.
Maynor Figueroa and Antolin Alcaraz had both been in South America representing their respective countries and did not arrive back at the club until 24 hours before the visit of the Swans.
Figueroa was substituted midway through the second half as Wigan failed to move off the foot of the Premier League table.
Arsene Wenger has also recently rued his side's busy fixture list and the demands being placed on his players due to the international games.
Martinez has admitted his frustration at the situation and believes governing bodies should look to change the scheduling.
He said: "To have players flying all over the world from one Saturday to another is not a healthy situation for any club.
"We get hurt more than others because we have a large amount of players who needs to get on a plane for nine hours to represent their countries in a friendly.
"It is wrong to put the players under that pressure, where they are risking injury.
"Then the clubs are getting players back on a Friday. It should not be allowed."
Meanwhile, Martinez has revealed that chairman Dave Whelan remains in support of his leadership and that a meeting earlier in the week was no more than a routine.
It is understood that Whelan took the players being on international duty into account when reviewing the defeat to Swansea.
And Martinez insists that both individuals have the club's best interests at heart in moving forward.
He added: "It was said it was a special meeting. But it was a normal meeting, when we exchanged ideas and thoughts about how we can move the club forward.
"I never lost the backing of the chairman. He is a football man. It is very rare to have someone with such knowledge of the game.
"It is important that we sit down, reflect and look forward. We have to work together on the club strategy."
