Robbie Keane admits that he was disappointed that the North London derby was postponed at the weekend from his perspective of being a former Tottenham Hotspur player.
Keane believed that despite Tottenham having a couple of injuries within their ranks, they have a strong team compared to Arsenal.
Arsenal confirmed on Friday evening that they had submitted an application to the Premier League for the match to be called off due to the unavailability of a large number of players as a result of Covid, injuries, suspension and international duty.
The Gunners’ request to have Sunday’s clash postponed was accepted by the Premier League, despite having had just a single Covid case within their squad at the time of the request being made (Evening Standard).
The former Spurs striker revealed he was due to attend the match and believes there needs to be more clarity from the Premier League on the actual rules of postponement with various managers in the top flight having a different perspective on the subject.
🗣 "Disappointed from a Tottenham perspective, it's an opportunity, they have a strong team compared to Arsenal."
