- Jose Mourinho has urged Spurs stars to stop their selfish attitudes and prepare for the return of Premier League
- The league has been on suspension since mid-March over COVID-19 pandemic
- Mourinho and his armies already returned to training last month as they continue their preparation for 'Project Restart'
Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho has urged his players to push their sentiments behind and get ready to return to football action this month.
The Premier League has been on suspension since the middle of March due to the outbreak of coronavirus pandemic.
Spurs' boss was quoted to have expressed worries about some players getting injured owing to the rush attached to the resumption for the campaign later this month.
SunSport reports that since the government announced the league can return on June 17, the Portuguese born tactician appears to have changed his mind.
He said: "We shouldn’t be selfish, we shouldn’t demand too much. It’s our time to give.
“Everyone has pre-season injuries in normal seasons so we cannot expect now not to have an injury here and there.
“We cannot ask for more than the authorities are giving us, which is maximum security. “I think now it’s time just to play and to give people what they want.”
Meanwhile, Dutch star who recently returned to full fitness Steven Bergwijn claims his contributions for Spurs' have proved his critics wrong.
The 22-year-old who joined the North Londoners from PSV Eindhoven for a fee around £27 million earlier this year reveals the club caused his ankle injury by working him too hard as “nonsense”.
His goal against Manchester City got his reign at the North London club off to a bright start but got injured just before the league went on mandatory break.
He told Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf: “I’ve seen that goal again and again, it still gives me goosebumps.
“I immediately gagged some mouths — it’s a pity I got injured pretty fast after that. “Tottenham’s medical staff were criticised. It’s really nonsense.
“I got a hit from behind, my ankle folded double and I tore my ligaments.”

The 57-year-old was overseeing their training session earlier this week when all of a sudden decided to move round the pitch on the two-wheels ride.
Mourinho has been of tremendous help in the fight against the infection after helping deliver relief materials to vulnerable people.
The former Premier League winner has also revealed that he wants football back but insists that it should not be at the expense of players' safety.
Also, Tottenham coach Jose Mourinho and his rival at Manchester City Pep Guardiola are among the best coaches in the world considering their achievements so far in their careers.
These two coaches have both managed Spanish La Liga clubs before coming to the Premier League in which they have also won the Champions League title more than once.
