Jose Mourinho has claimed that his opinion on a break in the Premier League season does not matter, but added that he has always been in favour of playing.

Rumours circulated earlier this week that the Premier League may opt to take a two-week break due to a rise in positive Coronavirus tests (Telegraph).

This came after 18 positive results were returned in one round of testing last week which was the highest number since testing began (SkySports).

As a result, both Everton vs Man City and Tottenham vs Fulham were called off at the last minute, with City and Fulham suffering from multiple positive results within their respective camps.

Despite this, the Premier League released a statement claiming that they had no plans to take a two-week break as they still have faith in the current protocols.

When asked about a possible break in his press conference today, Mourinho said that he preferred to prepare rather than speak on the issue.

He said (Charlie Eccleshare): “We are in a position where I don’t believe opinions matter. For sure, for sure my opinion doesn’t matter at all. I think you feel since the beginning of everything that I was always in favour of playing.”

He added (Charlie Eccleshare): “I was always in favour of making all the possible sacrifices to play. But when we arrive into a situation that for me is very, very doubtful I prefer not to speak and just to be ready, to be ready. And thinking that tomorrow we’re going to play.”
