Mou aims dig at colleagues amid EPL return saga

Mourinho aims fresh dig at colleagues as Premier League return is near

May 14, 2020 By Oscar Rojas
The Special One is desperate to go back to the sidelines, and he had a feisty suggestion for some of those who have voiced concerns.

Jose Mourinho has never held back when asked his thoughts on any matter. Even if that passion has gotten him in trouble more than once, the Special One made a fierce claim in a recent interview, which may serve as a hint that many things may change, but not Mourinho's desire for controversy.

According to a report by the Mirror, some managers such as Frank Lampard, Pep Guardiola, Nigel Pearson and Graham Potter voiced their concerns over a swift return to action in the Premier League. They were backed by Carlo Ancelotti and Jürgen Klopp, who had a more moderate approach on the matter. But the real stand out on the meeting among coaches was Mourinho, who allegedly told his colleagues 'If you don't want to play, stay home and watch the Bundesliga."

Those claims were backed by Mourinho's most recent words, which show his desperation to go back to work as soon as possible.

"I want to train, and I am desperate for the Premier League to return as soon as it is safe to do so, particularly now we are seeing other leagues preparing to return to action," Mou said.

The former Manchester United boss went on this subject, praising his players for their commitment during this complicated times.

"I am extremely proud of the way my players have maintained their fitness – they have shown great professionalism, passion and dedication. Every player has been extremely committed in terms of their individual work and now we wait for clearance to commence working in small groups again, which I will fully support," Mourinho added.

Premier League officers believe that the competition will be able to go back to action next month, with June 12 being the potential date for that to happen. Nevertheless, all teams must commit to a plan to ensure that no player or staff member is at risk of contracting this disease.
