Jose Mourinho confirms Steven Bergwijn availability for Sheffield United clash

According to Football.london, Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Steven Bergwijn is set to return to action against Sheffield United at the weekend.

The 23-year-old Dutchman has been pretty much a regular in the starting XI, in spite of him not producing the goods in the final third. However, Bergwijn hasn’t played in our last three matches. The attacker was an unused substitute in the League Cup clash against Brentford but was missing from the squad altogether against Marine and Fulham.

Mourinho, ahead of Tottenham’s clash against Sheffield United on Sunday, has revealed that Bergwijn was unavailable due to an illness in the last two games.

“Yeah, he was ill. He was ill the week before, the week of Marine and then he trained with the team only one day, which was the day before we played Fulham.”

When quizzed if the Dutchman was also struggling with any muscular problems which Mourinho had hinted in the last month, the manager insisted that it was not the case.

“No, no, was not a muscular injury. Was not that. He was ill, was not even coming to the training ground for a few days.”

Mourinho also went on to confirm that Giovani Lo Celso is the only player that is not in contention for selection for Sunday’s game.

“Yes, I think so. Gio of course is not. And we still have two training sessions before the game. But I believe no more problems in principle.”
