Updated: Mourinho hits out at EPL after Spurs, Fulham match is called off

Spurs Manager Jose Mourinho upbeat ahead another Arsenal clash


Jose Mourinho has taken to Instagram to state his frustrations with the Premier League as Tottenham’s game against Fulham was called off just hours before it was due to kick off.

The match was meant go ahead at 6pm on Wednesday, but an outbreak of coronavirus in the Fulham camp had left the fixture in doubt.

The Premier League only announced the decision to cancel the game just after 2.30pm, and Mourinho has clearly been left angered by their indecision.

Shortly before the announcement he posted a video of him and his staff sitting on sofas, seemingly awaiting instruction.

The camera pans to a TV showing Sky Sports news, and he zooms in on the time stating 2:02pm.

Wednesday’s match is the latest to be affected by coronavirus as cases continue to soar in the United Kingdom.

Everton’s match against Manchester City scheduled for Monday was called off after a number of City players returned positive tests.

And Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl did not attend his side’s game against West Ham after a member of his household also tested positive.

Meanwhile Sheffield United were also rocked with a number of coronavirus cases, although their game against Burnley still went ahead.

“When I listen to the news that the variant virus transmits quicker than the original virus, we can only do the right thing, which is have a circuit break.

“I am 66 years old and the last thing I want to do is catch Covid.”
