Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho admits he “misses our world” with normal life turned upside down by the coronavirus pandemic.
The Portuguese is living away from his family with members of his Spurs coaching staff and on Wednesday helped to deliver fresh produce from the kitchen garden at the club’s training ground to the stadium, which has become a food distribution hub.
“I miss football, but I prefer to say I miss our world like I think we all do,” he told Sky Sports.
Spurs could have forward Harry Kane, midfielder Moussa Sissoko and winger Steven Bergwijn available if and when football is able to safely resume.
“They are recovered from their injuries, so Harry Kane is not injured, Moussa Sissoko is not injured, Steven Bergwijn is not injured, but it is one thing not to be injured, it’s another thing to be ready to play football,” Mourinho added.
“For them, it is many, many, many weeks of the injury and when the injuries were almost at an end, we stopped training (because of the coronavirus pandemic).
“I don’t know, they don’t know, we have to wait for the official and right permission for the players to train again in groups to see if they can come back to a normal competition level.
“So if we play this season, the remaining nine matches, it would be good for everyone of us, it would be good for football, it would be good for the Premier League if players of that quality can play the remaining matches.”
