José Mourinho: Tottenham will have to sacrifice the Carabao Cup

Tottenham has a full fixture schedule and because of that José Mourinho believes they will have to forgo the Carabao Cup, which he also believes has led to Son Heung-min’s hamstring injury.

Mourinho considers Maccabi Haifa’s visit for a Europa League play-off significantly more important and two days before that on Tuesday Spurs host Chelsea in a fourth-round tie.

Once the latter has been completed they would have played seven games in 18 days.

The Guardian states that Mourinho claims the result is a team decision that will have no chance of overcoming the side of Frank Lampard.

Asked whether Harry Kane, for one, would face Chelsea he replied: “What would you do in my position? I would like to fight for the Carabao but I don’t think I can. We have a game on Thursday that gives us not as much money as the Champions League, but the group phase of the Europa League gives us a certain amount that for a club like us is very important.”

“It’s a competition with a possible group phase that gives us a good chance to go through to the next knockout stage, so this game on Thursday is very important for us.”
