Jose Mourinho has urged “football” and “safety authorities” to look into the temporary away dressing room his Tottenham side will use when they travel Stoke in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday.
Since football resumed in June, at many grounds across England’s top divisions away teams have used temporary dressing rooms in order to satisfy coronavirus protocols by minimising indoor interactions.
However, following Stoke’s Championship match with Middlesbrough earlier in December, Boro boss Neil Warnock was highly critical of the facilities provided for his team, describing them as a “pigsty” that he “wouldn’t have put animals in”.
Asked about the situation ahead of Wednesday’s quarter-final, which is live on Sky Sports, Mourinho revealed he had been sent footage of the changing room.
“I have a video of it,” Mourinho said. “A video made from a colleague that works in another team that recently played against them and I was not going to raise the question, you raised that question.
“But I think shouldn’t be a question for me, should be a question for the authorities – all the authorities – football authorities, safety authorities, but not for me.
“I’m not going to be the bad guy that is going to make comments about Stoke away dressing room.”
