Jose ​Mourinho confirms Tottenham had positive virus cases

Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho hopes his players will improve in coming games after a 1-0 loss to Everton.

The London club were drab at home in the opening weekend loss, and Mourinho admitted their preparations were less than ideal.

Spurs had positive COVID-19 cases in the squad, among other issues, in the lead up to the new season.

“We had cases of positive COVID-19,” Mourinho told reporters.

“We’re not going to say who.

“We had players in quarantine due to proximity to players with COVID. We had a player in quarantine after going on holiday.

“We had played on international duty.

“It was a difficult pre-season and I couldn’t expect them to be sharp and agile but I was expecting more from them individually and as a team.”
