Harry Kane and 3 other Tottenham Hotspur players set to miss a chunk of pre-season training under Nuno Espirito Santo

According to Football.london, four senior Tottenham Hotspur players, including Harry Kane, will miss a large part of the pre-season training under new manager Nuno Espirito Santo.

When there’s a new boss at the helm, the club would want the gaffer and his players to get to know each other as early as possible, especially in our case, where we waited more than two months to find Jose Mourinho’s permanent successor.

But four Spurs stars would have to wait a long time before they can be training under Santo. These players are: Harry Kane, Davinson Sanchez, Giovani Lo Celso, and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg. (h/t Football.london)

The reason for them joining up late with the squad is international duty. Kane has scored in all knockout games for England at UEFA Euros 2020 and has fired them into the final of the competition for the first time in their history.

Santo to wait for Spurs quartet

Lo Celso is also set to play in a final, with Argentina and Brazil going head-to-head in the Copa America. Sanchez was the losing semi-finalist in that competition with Colombia, as Argentina beat them on penalties.

Hojbjerg, despite his best efforts, could not help the Danes against England in a 2-1 semi-final loss at the Euros. But both Sanchez and Hojbjerg will have approximately three weeks of rest before joining up at the Enfield-based training complex.

A vast majority of senior Spurs players, including Dele Alli, Sergio Reguilon and Tanguy Ndombele have already started training at Hotspur Way. Santo would have preferred to have Kane, Hojbjerg, Sanchez, and Lo Celso too but he will have to wait for that. (h/t football.london)

Those players are ‘likely‘ to return to training at the start of August ahead of Spurs’ Premier League opener against champions, Manchester City. In an ideal world, the quartet would be match-fit and available for selection by then.
