​Tottenham boss Mourinho delighted at imminent return of fans

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho says the return of supporters is good for the players and the fans.

A maximum of 4,000 fans will be allowed at outdoor events in tier one areas when the four-week lockdown in England ends on 2 December.

Up to 2,000 people will be allowed in tier two areas but none in tier three.

"First we have to see which tier London is to see how many fans we can have at a home match," said Mourinho.

"In any case, looking at it by the economical perspective, I don't think it is good news at all for any club," added Mourinho.

"But for the passion of the fans, to open the door to some of them, for the happiness of every player, it is a good feeling.

"Best of all, it is that it is the start and, progressively, we can go in a direction where we will have a situation closer to the normality."
