Mourinho believes the Premier League has made the right decision despite Parker's obvious frustration.

Jose Mourinho

welcomed the

Premier League

decision on


's match against


on Wednesday as

Aston Villa

try to recover from a coronavirus outbreak.

Spurs will face Fulham instead of Aston Villa as their clash against

Dean Smith

's squad is postponed due to a Covid-19 outbreak.

"The biggest impact is to have matches postponed. That is the biggest impact,"

Mourinho said.

"The changing of the order of the matches, the impact is minimal because, in the end, you have to play 19 matches at home and 19 matches away, you have to play two matches against every team.

"If it is to help the Premier League to go and to end properly, I think it is a solution we all have to accept as a positive solution."

But Fulham see the change differently while this news was confirmed on Monday when Fulham were expecting a week off.

However, due to the last minute initial postponement, they received little sympathy for Mourinho.

Mourinho was asked if the switch was fair on Fulham, he replied


 "Are you serious?

"They had 48 hours to prepare for this game? You think so? I had the news I was not going to play them two hours before the game started."

Mourinho's former player in




, was not also impressed by this change either.

"It was a possibility on Saturday afternoon,"

said Parker

. "I didn't think it was realistic.

"We were then told on Monday at 0930 we had to fill in for Villa. I realize we live in unpredictable times. We have to move things and it is not ideal.

"I am normally the last one to moan or whine. To confirm a Premier League game at 0930 on Monday morning is scandalous.

"It's not about the fixture. I accept we have to play but it's the notice. The people making these decisions don't understand."
