Tottenham boss Mourinho counting on Sissoko return

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho is counting on Moussa Sissoko's return.

Mourinho says the midfielder is back in training after suffering a knee injury and could play before the end of the season.

"I think Moussa will give us a few matches this season," said Mourinho.

"He is outside (of the group) and has started to work a little. Next week, he will begin another phase of his rehabilitation. I am optimistic, but realistic about his situation.

"I hope Moussa will be playing football with us in a few weeks. If everything goes according to plan, we are counting on him for the end of March, the beginning of April."
