Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho says the way Wednesday’s match against Fulham was called off was “unprofessional”.

The Premier League game was postponed fewer than three hours before the 18:00 GMT kick-off after Fulham reported a number of positive Covid-19 cases.

“I don’t want to speak too much about it. I felt unprofessional, but that is the way it was,” said Mourinho.

“We were preparing ourselves for that match and that is disruptive of what is a week of work.”

Mourinho posted a video on Instagram on Wednesday afternoon, showing his players and staff at the club’s training ground waiting for a decision on whether the match would proceed.

He captioned the video with a comment saying “best league in the world.”

The match was the third to be postponed because of Covid outbreaks among players and club staff, with Aston Villa v Newcastle and Everton v Manchester City also rolled over to undetermined future dates.

The Premier League fixture list is under unprecedented pressure after the season got off to a later-than-usual start and with the delayed European Championships re-scheduled for June.
