Some Tottenham fans on social media believe that Jose Mourinho might have a thing or two do with Harry Kane pulling up with a muscle injury ahead of the Three Lions’ Nations League clash against Belgium.

The Spurs boss asked Gareth Southgate to be careful with Tottenham’s England contingent last week, citing the number of games they have played in since the start of the campaign (Football.London).

Responding to Mourinho, Southgate insisted that he is not looking to play any player in all three matches that England had coming up  (The Evening Standard) and true to his word, the England manager rested Kane as well as Eric Dier against Wales, although Harry Winks did get a start.

However, news emerged last night that Kane had sustained a muscle injury and was a doubt for England’s Nations League fixture against Belgium this evening (Sky Sports).

Some Spurs fans were actually pleased to hear that the striker might not be involved in the match, suggesting that Mourinho might be behind the striker’s decision to potentially pull out of the match.

However, others were worried about the news as they insisted Kane was not the type of player to fake or exaggerate injuries and hoped that it was nothing serious.


Spurs Web Opinion

Kane is the sort of striker who pushes to be involved in every single match that he can be. So, even if he is 70 to 80 per cent, he will want to be involved later, given how important the game is. Let’s hope that Calvert-Lewins’ and Ings’ showing against Wales convinces Southgate to rest the England captain this evening.
