Wolfsberger AC has no chance of making it into the second round of the European Football League after losing 4-1 in the first leg in Budapest. Nevertheless, the Carinthians want to put an exclamation mark against Tottenham today (6 p.m., DAZN) in London and say goodbye with a distance. “It’s not a tourist excursion for us,” assured WAC coach Ferdinand Feldhofer before the guest appearance on the posh White Hart Lane. In the Tottenham Stadium, the construction of which had devoured one billion euros, LASK had to admit defeat in the group stage 0-3.
Back then – on October 22, 2020 – Tottenham was in highs, now Jose Mourinho’s team is only mediocre in the English Premier League.
No wonder after five defeats in the last six championship rounds. So the Spurs have to deliver. Feldhofer knows that too: “I don’t think they will take us lightly.”
Because of the British variant of the coronavirus, the WAC’s travel route has changed. Because there is a landing ban for flights from Great Britain in Austria, the team will arrive at the airport in Ljubljana on Thursday and travel from there back to the Lavant valley by bus. Michael Liendl & Co should be spared a subsequent quarantine.
Mourinho has to look after himself and deal with increasing pressure. No problem? “We have a series of bad results, but there is no better method than mine and my coaching staff,” he says.
