Spurs Worried Southgate Will Play Kane Again

LONDON: Tottenham fear Harry Kane’s thigh injury will get worse if England manager Gareth Southgate stays with plans to list his captain in the starting line-up against Denmark.

Southgate will start a fight with Spurs boss Jose Mourinho if Kane is injured more in the Nations League action early tomorrow morning.

The England boss has angered Mourinho when he dropped Kane in the final 25 minutes of the 2-1 win over Belgium on Sunday.

After the match Southgate tried to dispel any controversy by stating that Kane only suffered from muscle fatigue.

From a medical point of view. There is always a discussion (with Tottenham), as it is often an issue.

“He reported on Sunday (October 4) and we gave the players who reported that day and were not involved in the Wales match, a two-day break.

“He started training on Wednesday and was less comfortable with his condition, so he was with our medical team for a few days.

“We do scans to be sure, but it’s more about muscle fatigue than injury, so it only takes a little bit of confidence.

“He knows he can improve his action, but needs more confidence, so his training session is not suitable for him to start the match against Belgium.

“Based on the current situation, he is ready to start the match this Wednesday,” Southgate said.
