EPL: Mourinho reveals when Harry Kane is likely to return

EPL: Mourinho reveals when Harry Kane is likely to return

Harry Kane could be back for Tottenham's final two Premier League games of the period versus Crystal Palace as well as Leicester, says Jose Mourinho.

The England captain had an operation last month to fix a ruptured tendon in his left hamstring after injuring himself in the defeat at Southampton on New Year's Day.

Spurs had predicted an April return to training for Kane and he hopes to begin running outdoors next month.

The striker posted a video of him continuing his rehabilitation last week as he stepped up his recovery, and the Daily Mail now reports that Kane has moved overseas for the next phase of his rehab.

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

"The only thing I can say is, if the referees are not allowed to go to the (pitchside) screen and take the big decisions of the game, they have to change the name of the VAR and call it VR - video referee", Mourinho said.

Asked if his talisman would play again this season, the Portuguese replied: "The Leicester match (9 May)".

"Maybe we need that match for something and maybe he can help us in this match".

'To be fourth, to be fifth, to be sixth. Nothing has happened. Everything is OK.

'Everything is OK. He's having his treatment.

"He has that authority, he's got that real kind of combative nature to his game and I think that's why Spurs were looking at him to see if they can prise him away in the January window". It's better not to put any kind of expectations, any kind of pressure. "So, there is a chance of him playing tomorrow [Wednesday], let's wait and see".

Tottenham Hotspur have revealed their starting eleven and substitutes to play host to Ralph Hasenhuttl's Southampton side in an FA Cup fourth round replay this evening.

A survey released by YouGov on Tuesday showed that 67% of Premier League fans believe VAR has made football less enjoyable, while supporters are also in favour of the referee using the pitchside monitors.

With the break split across two weekends, Mourinho is perplexed that his side are off this weekend, but then have to play next weekend immediately before a Champions League last-16 clash.
