Harry Kane, Heung-min Son and Moussa Sissoko will resume group training next week but Jose Mourinho expects his Tottenham squad to experience familiar preseason ‘problems’ ahead of the Premier League return.
Kane had been expected to miss most of the remainder of the season after he was injured against Southampton on New Year’s Day.
Sissoko meanwhile was ruled out for three months after undergoing knee surgery while Son fractured his right arm in February. The coronavirus lockdown however has given the trio time to recover and they are likely to be fit for the resumption of the Premier League season - with Spurs restarting their campaign against Manchester United on June 19-21.
But after two months of training at home, Mourinho admits there are likely to be the usual fitness and injury issues that come after a prolonged break.
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."
