Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho provides injury update on key quartet ahead of PL return

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has delivered a major injury update on key quartet of Moussa Sissoko, Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Steven Bergwijn. (h/t TottenhamHotspur.com)

Kane has been out of action since the turn of the year with a hamstring problem, while Sissoko too has been ruled out with a knee injury. Son fractured his arm in a game against Aston Villa in February, while January signing Bergwijn picked up an ankle injury against Burnley in March.

The quartet missed our key UEFA Champions League clash against RB Leipzig, which we lost. Soon after, the campaign was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic. And after almost three months, the Premier League has confirmed that the season will resume in mid June.

Kane and Son are back in full training

Teams have begun training with social distancing in place at first, before resuming close contact training earlier this week. And now manager Mourinho has confirmed that all the four injured players – Kane, Son, Sissoko and Bergwijn are all fully fit and will be involved in full-fledged training starting Monday.

“In relation to the big injuries that ended in surgeries, Moussa, Sonny and Harry, yes, they are back. We are going to start training with the full group next Monday, and yes, they are going to be involved in the group.”

However, the manager insisted that the club needed to be careful with regard to the players fitness and welfare given that they had been out of action for a long time. The Portuguese reckons that the current period prior to the season restart was very much like a pre-season.

“We have to be very careful with the players’ welfare, and this pre-season is probably more difficult than other pre-seasons, because they come from a long period without training, so we have to be careful with that.”
