Jose Mourinho posts positive update on injuries to Harry Kane and other Tottenham stars


Tottenham Hotspur is expected to have a clean health check when the Premier League season resumes next month.

Manager Jose Mourinho gave an update on injured stars Harry Kane, Son Heung-min, Steven Bergwijn and Moussa Sissoko.

England captain Kane was torn at the hamstring and midfielder Moussa Sissoko had to undergo knee ligament surgery after a 1-0 loss to Southampton on New Year’s Day.

Meanwhile, Son broke his arm in a 3-2 win at Villa Park in February and Bergwijn injured his ankle in the Spurs’ 1-1 draw with Burnley in March – their last game before the suspension of the season.

However, Mourinho has confirmed that the four players should resume full training with the Spurs team before the Premier League restart on June 17.

“When it comes to the big injuries that ended in surgery, Moussa, Sonny and Harry, yes, they’re back,” said Mourinho.

“We are going to start training with the whole group next Monday, and yes, they will be involved in the group. “

The Portuguese also warned that players will need to be carefully managed as matches resume after a three-month hiatus.

He added, “We have to be ready for the problems now because it’s the preseason, and the preseason is problematic.

Kane hasn’t played for Spurs since January 1

“I know that some people talk about it in a way that is new in football, but it’s not new, problems in preseason, players long without playing, without even training on the field, without competing , now the players are back, I can’t imagine it’s going to be any different for us.

“We have to be very careful with the well-being of the players, and this preseason is probably more difficult than the other preseason, because they come from a long period without training, so we have to be careful with that.
