The Tottenham manager, José Mourinho, criticised the Premier League’s decision to schedule his side’s match against Southampton for midday on Sunday, after they played a Europa League qualifier in Bulgaria on Thursday night.
Tottenham beat Lokomotiv Plovdiv before travelling back to the UK ahead of their trip to the south coast. Next week they face Leyton Orient on Tuesday in the Carabao Cup before a trip to North Macedonia on Thursday to play KF Shkëndija in another Europe League qualifier.
‘They forgot that this situation. This is a total joke,’ Mourinho lambasted.
