Tottenham boss Mourinho upset for Leyton Orient: I have total sympathy

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho admits he's upset for Leyton Orient.

Tottenham reached the fourth round of the Carabao Cup courtesy of a bye following a mass coronavirus outbreak at previous opponents Leyton Orient.

The League Two side wanted the lucrative tie re-arranged, only for the EFL to eliminate them from the competition.

"I think (Orient) have to be very, very upset. I think they have to, I have total sympathy for them," Mourinho said.

"I don't think they did anything wrong - they were tested, I think they deserve to play against us, no doubt about it."
