Former Tottenham Hotspur player and current Fulham boss Scott Parker has reacted to Jose Mourinho’s claim that he does not feel sorry for the Cottagers.

Mourinho was asked whether he felt sympathy after Tottenham vs Fulham was rearranged with 48 hours of official notice, to which he responded that Spurs were only given two hours notice when the game was originally called off.

The Spurs head coach said (Dan Kilpatrick): “Are you serious? They had 48 hours to prepare for this game. Look, I had the news that I was not going to play them two hours before the game started.

“The biggest impact is to have matches postponed. The changing of the order of the matches, the impact is minimal I would say. In the end, you have to play 19 matches at home and 19 away.”

Parker has labelled this as ‘an irrelevance’, hinting that having a game called on at short notice is far more difficult to deal with. However, he refused to be pulled into a war of words with The Special One.
