Mourinho has to manage Harry Kane’s resumption to the pitch properly, according to Paul Robinson.
“It’s all about how Jose Mourinho handles the situation, because you can’t expect a player who’s been out after that time to come back and play three games per week with all the demands that Premier League football has on you,” he said to Sky Sports. “Managers will have to be very careful and aware of how they manage their players’ fitness, injuries and team rotation.”
He also says the Tottenham striker can’t be expected to play three games a week:
“You have to worry whether Harry Kane can play two or three games a week, whether he can play 90 minutes on a Saturday, and then wait again for another 90 minutes on the following Saturday.”
The ex-Spurs goalkeeper said, “Squad rotation, in fact, is going to be massive in the next three or four weeks with the number of games-training is going to be minimal, so it’s going to be mostly about preparation and recovery.”
