Jose Mourinho caused somewhat of a stir in his press conference at Hotspur Way yesterday afternoon.
The Spurs head coach was asked for an update on Harry Kane who had undergone an operation on his left hamstring after suffering a tear during the New Year’s Day defeat to Southampton.
Tottenham have previously claimed that they expect their star striker to return to training in April after a period of rehabilitation.
Mourinho was questioned ahead of Tottenham’s FA Cup third round replay against Middlesbrough and appeared to suggest that the England captain could miss this summer’s Euro 2020 championships (Sky Sports).
Evening Standard football correspondent Dan Kilpatrick has taken to Twitter to reveal that he has been told that Kane expects to be back in training in early April providing any setbacks which sets his recovery period at roughly twelve weeks.
Kane had scored 17 goals in 25 appearances in all competitions for Spurs this season prior to suffering the injury (transfermarkt).
#thfc Told Kane still expects to be back in training in early April, barring any unforeseen setbacks, despite Mourinho’s suggestion yesterday that he could miss Euro 2020. At this stage, it’s roughly a 12-week injury.

Should Kane return to training in early April, he should be available for the last few weeks of the season along with the Euros. However, hamstring injuries cannot usually be rushed back from without full recovery, otherwise, the risk of a repeat issue is high.
