Jose Mourinho has claimed that Harry Kane’s chances of being fit for Euro 2020 is not his problem.

The England captain ruptured a tendon in a left hamstring during the second half of the Premier League loss at Southampton on New Year’s Day with the club revealing that they expect him to return to training in April.

The 26-year-old has recently jetted off to the Caribbean to undertake a warm weather training programme following hamstring surgery (Evening Standard).

Kane posted a video of himself late last month on Twitter undergoing hamstring strengthening exercises at Hotspur Way.

It was reported that the forward can expect to return to outdoor training next month where he will begin to run again (Daily Mail).

While Mourinho revealed that he hopes to have Kane fit and available to face Leicester City on May 9th but was not interested in commenting on his availability for the Three Lions.

He told The Guardian: “That’s a problem for Southgate and for Steve Holland, not for me,” he said before being asked for his opinion if he was in charge of England.

“I don’t know. I’m not,” he concluded with a smirk on his face.

England face Croatia at Wembley on 14 June for their first match of Euro 2020 and will take on Austria on 2 June and Romania on 7 June in preparation for the tournament.
