Mourinho starts strong and is already stirring up the calendar: “It's a joke”

Not everything is good news for Jose Mourinho. Although he is about to reinforce his Tottenham with Bale and Reguilón, the Portuguese is very angry with those responsible for his team having before it a horizon of 9 games in 22 days.

The reason is the three qualifying matches for the Europa League that he would have to play if he advances in the competition, which would join the Premier League and League Cup matches he must face at this start of the season.

Spurs beat Lokomotiv Plovdiv on Thursday and will face Southampton in the Premier League on Sunday. Just two days later, on Tuesday, they will play Leyton Orient in the League Cup and on Thursday they will travel to Macedonia to face Shkendija.

“It's a joke, a real joke,” says Mourinho. “On Saturday we will be in Southampton, on Wednesday we will fly to Macedonia and so on. It is quite dramatic, but I want to be in this competition (the Europa League), so we will fight until we can.”
