Soccernet report that Spurs’ second leg clash with PSV Eindhoven could easily be postponed on Thursday due to industrial action. Tottenham lost 1-0 to PSV at White Hart Lane last week, with manager Juande Ramos’ excellent UEFA Cup record in the balance. It appears that the Spaniard and his team could be facing a potential stay of execution.
However, a police strike has already resulted in tomorrow’s top-of-the-table Eredivisie encounter between PSV and Ajax being called off, the second fixture in the Dutch league to be hit.
Police unions have warned all games for this week could be at risk, including the UEFA Cup tie between PSV and Spurs.
It’s not clear at this stage what the repercussions would be for PSV if this match was postponed. It’s hard to see how UEFA can threaten the Dutch league leaders with expulsion when you’re essentially looking at an issue which is out of their control. Perhaps Spurs will have more time to rediscover the form which led to them winning the Carling Cup.
