Tottenham manager, Jose Mourinho has come out to say that the 2020-21 EPL season was wrong even before it started. He recently revealed that it is unfair for both Manchester teams to start their seasons with a game in hand.
According to him, starting the season with two clubs having a match in hand is immediately a wrong start, and it does not make sense for everyone to just be knowing when both matches will be played in the last week of December.
He added that there are lots of things that are not right with the season, and the matches keep coming thick and fast.
His words, “It’s a special season with special circumstances,”
“We have to say it’s going to be fair because if not it’s better not to be involved. I believe that even from before the season started, it started immediately in the wrong way. Because to start the season with two clubs having a match in hand, it’s immediately a wrong start.
“The season started in September and only in the last week of December we were informed about when these two matches were going to be played. Now it’s about many other matches, or a few more. There are lots of things that are not right, but it is what it is, it’s what it’s possible to have. When you say it’s fair or not fair, we have to say it’s fair.”
On Tottenham, “I don’t want to speak too much about it,”
“Just to say I felt unprofessional, but that is the way it was. We were preparing ourselves for that match and of course we didn’t play and that is disruptive of what is a week of work.
“The training sessions before that would be different if we weren’t going to play that game. People can think it was good for me that there was no game, but only good for me if I knew there was no game because then I could have had a different cycle in the training sessions.”
“Not to play and not to train like we would have liked in the days before does not help.”
