Mourinho supports pushing date of Carabao Cup final back

Tottenham boss, Jose Mourinho, supports pushing the date of the Carabao Cup final back.

Spurs will meet Manchester City in the final after the latter’s victory over Manchester United last night.

The two teams will have to wait over three months for the final after the EFL delayed the Wembley showpiece from February until April 25 – in the hope supporters will be able to attend.

“I am supportive of it because it is a special situation,” Mourinho said of the decision. “If the final is in the beginning of February, the country is in lockdown, no supporters in the stadium, not even the fans to get out in the street celebrating the victory of his team.

“I support totally the 25th April, give us some time, hopefully, we pray for it, hopefully, the world changes and improves a little bit and I am not expecting too much, I am not praying for a full Wembley but maybe we can have a some supporters at Wembley. I am fully supportive, it is a special moment, I prefer it is played at the end of April.”
