The Italian expressed his frustration at the situation at the club stating that he was unsure of the status of their Europa Conference League fixture against Rennes on Thursday.

He said, “To speak about football today is impossible. The last situation made me very upset. I think the situation is serious. There is a big infection and now, for sure, we are a bit scared because tomorrow we don’t know what happens.

“Tomorrow, who? Me? I don’t know. Better me than a player for sure. It is not right for everyone because we have contact with our family when we come back home.”

Tottenham need a win against the French side to stand a chance of qualifying for the next round of the UECL, whereas they have a Premier League fixture against Brighton on Sunday.
