Jose Mourinho had feared the worst when talking about Harry Kane's fitness problems. Those worries seem to have ended today, as the English striker has returned to the pitch to enjoy light training sessions at the team's training complex.
Speaking in the pre-match press conference, Mourinho referred to his star's fitness, and while he failed to commit himself to voice the date he expects Kane back, he admitted that the striker will be back for the final games of the season.
"It gives me hope. Instead of being back for one or two matches, he could be back to play three, four or five. We are speculating a little bit but the feelings are good," Mourinho said today.
Mourinho dismissed giving an exact date on Kane's return, and while at it, he chose to praise the striker's commitment and leadership.
"He is the kind of guy that doesn't accept protocol or a single date or fixture. He is a great professional and a fighter and he wants to be back as soon as possible. What does that mean? I don't know," Mourinho added.
Tottenham will host Wolverhampton this weekend, in what could turn out to be quite an interesting match for two teams trying to win a spot in the 2020-21 UEFA Europa League.
