Jose Mourinho Hopeful On Dele Alli Getting Back On Track After Talk

Kane lying on the pitch sustained the injury against Liverpool last week

Mourinho last started the England global in the Premier League on the opening day of the campaign, but following talks on Tuesday he believes there are no hard feelings between the pair.

"It's an important period of the season for the team and for him also".

The Portuguese stressed that Spurs need the good Alli back in the team as they head into a busy second part of the campaign.

"We need him. We need a good Dele Alli".

"It's not just Dele".

We can understand why as well, Spurs really need to put together a run of results if they're to get their season back on track, but that's going to be hard without Reguilon and Lo Celso available.

That would be a significant boost as well, given Spurs have won just 34.8 per cent of their 23 games across all competitions without Kane since the start of last season, compared to 52.4 per cent with him on the pitch.


"It doesn't put a player in great form without limitations in terms of fitness, but I believe the conversation was the extra motivation he needed to be back as soon as possible". When physically he is ready, I believe he will mentally be in a good place to go for it'.

Sportsmail revealed earlier this week that Spurs were confident his injury was not long-term and that he could be available within three weeks.

Mourinho has now confirmed that he and the player had a personal meeting on Tuesday afternoon in which they found "common ground". He is happy with the progress.

"He is happy with the progress; of course we are happy too", he added.

"We were scared when it happened but now we are a bit more positive", Mourinho said of the injury Kane sustained in the league defeat by Liverpool.

'I think it is not very optimistic to say next week he should be playing, it is a effect of his good evolution. "Maybe Everton or Manchester City, one of these matches he will be back".
