Tottenham boss Mourinho: Restart training just like preseason

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has warned his players to be wary of his their fitness as they resume contact training.

Harry Kane, Heung-min Son and Moussa Sissoko will resume group training next week but Mourinho expects his Tottenham squad to experience familiar preseason 'problems' ahead of the Premier League return.

Mourinho told Tottenham's YouTube channel: “The boys are all back, but as I was saying we have to be ready for problems, because this is pre-season and pre-season brings problems.

"I know that some people are speaking about it in the way of it looks like it's a new thing in football, but it's not a new thing problems in pre-season.

"Long time without playing, without even training on a pitch or competing. Now the players are back I can imagine it's not going to be different for us. We're going to have our little problems and we don't know how we're going to arrive for the first match.

"But in relation to all these big injuries that ended in surgeries, Moussa, Sonny and Harry, yes they are back and we are going to start training with the full group next Monday and yes they are going to be in the group."
