Jose Mourinho has admitted that he is aware of the state of the away dressing room at the bet365 Stadium ahead of Tottenham’s trip to Stoke City tomorrow, insisting that it is up to the authorities to clamp down on such poor facilities.
The away dressing room at Stoke has created controversy this season, with Middlesbrough manager Neil Warnock labelling it a disgrace after his side lost 1-0 to Stoke earlier this month (talkSPORT).
Warnock, who does not mince his words, insisted that he would not even put animals in the facility, as the toilets did not work and there was water all over the floor.
Despite Stoke being in the Championship, Mourinho insisted that he knows what his side are in for as a colleague of his sent him a video of the changing room recently.
Mourinho refused to say too much about the situation and be perceived as the ‘bad guy’.
When asked about the facilities at Stoke, the Spurs boss told Football.London: “Yes, I have a video of it, a video made from a colleague that works for another team that recently played against them.
“I was not going to raise the question. You raised that question. But it should not be a question for me. It should be a question for the authorities, All the authorities. Football authority. Safety authorities. But not for me.
“I am not going to be the bad guy that is going to make comments about Stoke’s away dressing room.”
However, Stoke Sentinel reports that the away changing room at the bet365 has since been upgraded and the one in use currently is not the same one Warnock complained about.

Whether or not the dressing room has been upgraded, it is good that Mourinho and the Tottenham players at least know what to expect, so that they will not be surprised by the facilities at the bet365 tomorrow.
