Jose Mourinho has insisted he is ready and raring for the Premier League to restart the season.
It comes after the Tottenham boss took part in a meeting with other Premier League managers on Wednesday to discuss ‘Project Restart’.
The league’s medical officer Mark Gillet led the meeting, outlining the safety protocols of players returning to training, with Spurs allowing their squad to resume individual training at their club facilities on April 28.
The former Chelsea and Manchester United boss has now insisted he is ‘desperate’ for football to return ‘as soon as it is safe’.
Mourinho said: “I don’t think my position in the meeting has been reflected fairly at all in media reports. I have not asked for any delay.
“I want to train, and I am desperate for the Premier League to return as soon as it is safe to do so, particularly now we are seeing other leagues preparing to return to action.”
