Jose Mourinho revealed last night that he expects to have Heung-min Son back in the squad after the international break in October.

This comes after the South Korean winger was forced off with a hamstring injury against Newcastle at half time on Sunday.

In the post-match press conference after the 1-1 result, Mourinho revealed that Son would be out for ‘some time’ with the hamstring problem.

However, it now appears as though the injury is not too bad at all, with a return expected to come within the next few weeks.

South Korea had been set to return to international action in World Cup qualifiers against Turkmenistan and Sri Lanka on October 8 and 13 respectively, however, the BBC report that these fixtures have been postponed.

For other nations the international period will end by mid-October, meaning a Son return is on the horizon.

Mourinho also took the chance to urge international managers not to call up any Tottenham players who had endured a huge number of minutes over the past two weeks.

He said (Football London): “I expect to have him [Son] back after the international period and you give me the opportunity to speak about it. I hope the national team coaches they have their data and they realise how many minutes Tottenham players have played this week and I hope they care about the players and they protect them because Tottenham players this week they have an incredible amount of minutes and work and it’s very, very dangerous. What I did today with Eric Dier today is very, very dangerous.”
