Tottenham vs Fulham: I don’t owe Mourinho an apology – Scott Parker

Fulham manager, Scott Parker, is adamant that he owes nobody an apology for fielding a strong team for their 1-1 draw with Tottenham Hotspur despite Jose Mourinho suggesting otherwise.

Spurs were originally due to host Fulham on December 30, but the game was postponed hours before kick-off due to a COVID-19 outbreak within Parker’s squad.

The Premier League then rescheduled the game for Wednesday night, after Spurs trip to Aston Villa was called off.
