Trainer José Mourinho of Tottenham Hotspur believes that the clubs from the Premier League should not whine about the sometimes busy playing schedule. According to the Portuguese, the clubs must be flexible if they want to play the season with all the corona problems out there.
“Do we want to finish the season or not? Do we want football to continue or not? Do we want to be the only country in Europe without football or not?” Said Mourinho in the run-up to Wednesday night’s catch-up game against Fulham. That game was supposed to be played at the end of last month, but was then canceled a few hours before kick-off at the request of Fulham because several players and staff members had tested positive for the corona virus.
Tottenham Hotspur was supposed to play against Aston Villa on Wednesday, but that club now has to deal with many corona cases and so the game was canceled. The organization of the Premier League therefore decided on Monday to put the Tottenham – Fulham make-up match on the program instead. It sparked an angry reaction from Fulham manager Scott Parker, who finds it “outrageous” that he has only 48 hours to prepare his squad. However, according to Mourinho, Parker should not whine like that.
“If we all just think about ourselves and create the perfect situation for ourselves, it will be very difficult for the Premier League. We have played eleven more games than Fulham this season. They played against QPR in London on Saturday and then had three. days to prepare. Come on, let’s just play football and protect our industry. “
