thinks that the officials need to make some clear and consistent guidelines about the Covid_19 postponements. They will face


in the Carabao Cup and both of them have seen cancelled matches before this cup match.

“I think it’s very important that the EFL, the Premier League and the FA find some kind of guidelines across the four leagues and the cup tournaments.

“We all know we are living in a global pandemic and it’s safety first for everyone involved in the game but also society. I know it’s very difficult for the organisations to get it right.

“But I’m talking about our game against Bristol was postponed, but Wimbledon in League One were not allowed to get their game postponed even though they maybe had more cases.

“Then we know Premier League games have been postponed. I don’t know how many players need to have tested positive or have symptoms or whatever. I think it’s very important that we have guidelines the same across all the games.

“We are going to play so many games already, when will they find the time for the remaining games?

“If you don’t have consistency it will add up either extending the season again, then we are into the Euros. A strict guideline would really be helpful.”

And about their important match against Tottenham in the Carabao Cup semi finals he said:

“I have studied football for many years and Jose is one of the greatest of all time so it’s a privilege to play against his team,

“I admire him a lot for having that fantastic career. But when the whistle blows it’s just another bloke standing in the dug-out.

“I’m still pretty sure he also goes to the toilet sometimes!”
