Tottenham Hotspur head coach, Jose Mourinho, has now revealed that more than one of his players tested positive for COVID-19 during pre-season this year.
The Special One refused to name the affected players, but added that some tested positive and others had to quarantine due to their close proximity to the infected.
Mourinho also pointed towards Harry Kane’s quarantine after returning from holiday in the Bahamas, as well as various players having international duty last week.
The Lilywhites certainly looked leggy in their first Premier League match against Everton today, falling to a frustrating 1-0 defeat at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Calvert-Lewin opened the scoring in the second half with a dominant header after a superb Digne set-piece delivery and Spurs were unable to recover.
Dele Alli and Matt Doherty arguably had the best chances in the game for the home side, but Jordan Pickford saved both efforts to earn his clean sheet.
Jose Mourinho told the press after the game (Football London): “We had cases of positive COVID-19. 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.”
