Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino says it is “not fair” that Ajax have the weekend off ahead of their Champions League semifinal while Spurs face a testing Premier League match against West Ham.
Spurs host their London rivals on Saturday ahead of the first leg of their European last-four clash against Ajax at home on Tuesday. Dutch authorities postponed this weekend’s Eredivisie fixtures to give Ajax more time to prepare.
“It is difficult. I understand that in this type of situation everyone can have an opinion,” Spurs boss Pochettino told reporters on Friday.
“It’s true that the Premier League is very different to the Dutch league, the fact or the reality is they are not going to play. I think it’s not fair.”
