Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho's blunt response to Harry Kane's England 2020 chances

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho's blunt response to Harry Kane's England 2020 chances”

Tottenham would also hope to still be in the Champions League and FA Cup by the time Kane returns.

Mourinho believes Spurs' Premier League fixtures against Leicester on May 9 and Crystal Palace on May 17 are realistic targets for Kane, especially if his side have something significant to play for, such as qualifying for the Champions League.

The England captain, 26, has had surgery to fix a ruptured tendon in his hamstring, sustained in defeat by Southampton on New Year's Day.

Spurs sent Kane to North America in January 2019 as part of his warm-weather training regime following an ankle ligament injury which saw the striker return earlier than expected.

The England captain showed up to supply an injury increase to Spurs by tipping up his return from the hamstring surgical procedure he went through in January, with Spurs declaring he would certainly not go back to complete training prior to April. Maybe we need them for something.

"No. I think it's not easier, because there are lots of matches to play, but we'll try to finish sixth, fifth, fourth, think we have a chance and we'll fight for that", he said. He's having his treatment, no pressure, he keeps going, there's no setback.

He has flown to the Bahamas this week for a stint of warm-weather training, amid hopes he could be back soon.

But Mourinho said Parrott's omission from the A squad was a UEFA formality and he could still be involved in the Euro ties.

Spurs will be hoping Kane might be back to help them win a possible FA Cup final in May, but they will need to get past Southampton in Wednesday's fourth-round replay. "He is available to play", the Spurs boss said.

"It would be much more normal for us to be playing this weekend and not playing before you play against Leipzig".

'But no, you have a break then you play against Aston Villa on Sunday, not Saturday or Friday but Sunday.

"So they gave you 10 days of break, but then you play on the Sunday, when you then play on the Wednesday". But I don't complain, it is what it is'.
