Tottenham tipped to file 'complaint' after 'unfair' development in last 24 hours - pundit

Paddy Kenny claims Tottenham face a “ridiculous” set of fixtures following a host of postponements.

The former Leeds United stopper, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, claims there is no other way to get the games played.

Tottenham have seen their last four games postponed, with their Premier League clash at Leicester City called off at lunchtime on Thursday.

Their clash against Burnley on 28 November was snowed off before a covid outbreak cancelled the club’s next three games.

Tottenham already faced a busy festive schedule due to their Conference League and Carabao Cup commitments.

Kenny labelled the potential schedule as “ridiculous”.

“They have no option, there is no other way,” Kenny told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“They have to get these games played. They could be playing four times a week.

“Tottenham will complain and say it’s unfair but I’m not really sure what else they can do.

“We have seen it happen before and it really takes it out of some players.

“Managers always go on about how it’s not fair on the players and they talk up the risk of injury.

“The good thing is it will happen after January so they have a chance to get players in.

“I’m not even sure how that would work. They would have to play something like Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday then Saturday.

“It’s ridiculous but there is no other way.”

As it stands, Tottenham’s next game is against Liverpool on Sunday (19 December).

Spurs haven’t played since 5 December’s 3-0 win over Norwich at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
