- Jose Mourinho has warned Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp that complaining about matches will not change things
- The Portuguese boss claims he has adapted to the Premier League tight schedule since he was a manager in 2004
- Tottenham and Chelsea will square off in the London derby to be played at Stamford Bridge
Jose Mourinho has told Jurgen Klopp that his complaints about the tight match schedules will not be adjusted, Daily Mail.
The Liverpool manager cried for help after his side suffered their first defeat in the Champions League this season, losing 2-0 to Atalanta.
The German boss has most of his squad's first-team members sideline through injury and had to look for alternatives in the youth squad.
However, Mourinho claims he was making the same points 16 years ago when he also complained about not giving players enough in between matches.
"Klopp arrived by 2015.
"I arrived in 2004 so what he knows from 2015, I know since 2004. And nothing changes. We have to adapt to it and that's the way it is."
Spurs will host Bulgarian side Ludogorets in the Europa League on Thursday, November 26, 2020, before taking on Chelsea on Sunday in the London derby.
The Blues have the advantage and have taken much time to rest ahead of the weekend derby coming up at Stamford Bridge.
The Tottenham boss added:
"They were lucky this week that the draw gave them a Tuesday match.
"That's not a new thing, that happens all the time.
"We knew since we went into the Europa League so we're not going to complain about it.
"We knew we were to always play on the Thursday."
