Tottenham are among those back to work at Hotspur Way and Mourinho is happy to welcome back his players, although seeing other leagues such as the Bundesliga already playing games has made Spurs more eager to return.
In an exclusive chat with Geoff Shreeves on The Football Show, Mourinho said: “Honestly, since the moment Bundesliga started, the Portuguese league and Spanish league announced a date to start, I think it is the most difficult moment for us, because we want to play. It is hard to see other countries playing football and we don’t do it.
“I always loved, and always tried to make my players love the Christmas period, where instead of being sad, we were always happy to give people what people love. In this moment we are feeling a bit of the opposite.
“German professionals are giving the world something that they love, and we are not, and we want to play, but of course we are respectful of the authorities and we trust them and the Premier League. We just have to wait for the decision; when they tell us the moment to start, we want very much to do it.
“Obviously it was an amazing feeling for everybody to be back on the green carpet, because I think we all miss even the smell of it!
