Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho has come out to reveal that he wants the English Premier League to restart soon following a two month stoppage over coronavirus.
The project restart is facing several hurdles with some players said not to be in the right frame of mind to play as they fear that they could contract the deadly coronavirus.
Earlier, media reports had indicated that the Portuguese tactician wants the restart delayed but he has now come out to set the record straight stating that he wants action to resume as soon as possible.
“I don’t think my position in the meeting has been reflected fairly at all today in media reports. I have not asked for any delay. I want to train and I am desperate for the Premier League to return as soon as it is safe to do so, particularly now we are seeing other leagues preparing to return to action,” he said.
With most teams fearing that their players could report back unfit, Mourinho says his troops are fit and ready to play
“I am extremely proud of the way my players have maintained their fitness – they have shown great professionalism, passion, and dedication. We have all been working extremely hard through remote squad training sessions and isolated running now the pitches are available to use again at the training center, “he added.
“Every player has been extremely committed in terms of their individual work and now we wait for clearance to commence working in small groups again, which I will fully support.”
