Following the late decision to postpone Wednesday’s Premier League match between the two teams, Fulham manager Scott Parker understands the annoyance of Tottenham’s opposite number, Jose Mourinho. “unprofessional”unprofessional.
Parker revealed he is uncertain if his side’s next game against Burnley on Sunday will be after the outbreak of the Covid 19 virus, and having already made a late change this week, he admits he can understand why Mourinho was upset. Scott “We’re going to travel tomorrow and have tests today, the results are going to come back in the morning, so at the moment it’s full steam ahead.” We were in exactly the same situation as Tottenham. We were in a hotel, and we didn’t know until late. “We were in exactly the same situation as Tottenham. We were in a hotel, we didn’t know until late as well. ” “The places where the information went on Tuesday…that information didn’t change until Wednesday. There was no new information on Wednesday, so the information was there on Tuesday, but for one reason or another, the match wasn’t postponed or canceled until the time it happened. “I was in the very same position and I understand the anger of Jose,” he said. “Parker wouldn’t go into detail until it happened. After a member of his household tested positive for the coronavirus and missed the goalless draw with Southampton on Boxing Day, the former England international was obliged to separate himself. But despite the recent distractions, after four straight draws, Parker maintains his attention is on getting a result at Turf Moor. Now, of course, the players who tested positive are in isolation,” he said. “I don’t want to go into the details, but we have had a lot of positive tests. I don’t know whether or not the game is going to be at Burnley, I’m not sure. I don’t know whether or not the game is going to be at Burnley, I’m not sure. In the last few days, we’ve been testing and testing. What I do know is that here I have a group of players and we are planning to go to Burnley as best as we can and put in a good show to try and get some points. “As for the other things, we’ll leave that to the people and the pitches that come back in the next few hours, whatever comes back in terms of the last round of testing. “For me, the main emphasis is on going full speed ahead and trying to prepare a team to go to Burnley to get a result. Jose Mourinho found “unprofessional” handling of the postponement (Mike Egerton/PA) Parker believes that halting soccer would be a step backward after so much effort has gone into training players and assumes the right decisions will be made by those in charge. I don’t like the idea of stopping the game because, as for teams and players, we’ve worked so hard to get to that point, so that’s not something I want to do,”I don’t like the idea of stopping the game because we’ve worked so hard to get to this position as far as teams and players, so that’s not something I want to do,” I’m not. A fresh pressure is there. I don’t know if the protocols for this new strain that appears to be more infectious and spreads faster are good enough. There are a variety of things that matter to me, I suppose, and that’s the well-being and safety of the players, their families, the places they go, whether they’re hotels, traveling, opposing teams…. And the dignity of the game as well. And they say that for a team, 14 players is the limit. I’m not sure that playing with 14 players and a three-man bench is the best thing to do. “I’m not sure we really want that as a competition, in terms of the game and the league we all want.”
