Mourinho confirms Spurs will play kids against Bayern Munich

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho plans to play the kids in their Champions League clash at Bayern Munich next week.

Mourinho will rest senior players against Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Wednesday because Spurs will finish as runners-up in the group regardless of the result.

He will take youngsters such as Kyle Walker-Peters, Oliver Skipp, Troy Parrott and Ryan Sessegnon to Germany and leave first-team regulars in London to work on specifics of his team pattern.

"It is a great opportunity for the development of these young players," said Mourinho, "to play in an amazing stadium, against top players."
