Kane could return for Spurs’ last two league games: Mourinho

LONDON (AFP) – England captain Harry Kane could return from injury in time for the final two games of the Premier League season, Tottenham Hotspur coach Jose Mourinho said.

Kane is recovering from surgery to repair a ruptured tendon in his hamstring suffered during Tottenham’s defeat at Southampton on New Year’s Day.

Tottenham had previously stated they expect the 26-year-old to return to training some time in April despite reports he could be sidelined for six months.

However, when asked if Kane would play again this season, Mourinho told reporters, “The Leicester match (May 9). Maybe we need that match for something.

“To be fourth, to be fifth, to be sixth. Maybe we need that match for something and maybe he can help us in this match. I hope.

“There’s no pressure, he keeps going, no setback. I just think that’s my feeling.”
