London returnee, Jose Mourinho has given an update to the injury that hit one of his players, Son Heung-min, as he fears the South Korean could miss the remainder of the season.

The statement from the manager is coming just a few hours after the club released a short statement saying Son Heung-min will have surgery this week, after fracturing his arm during Sunday’s 3-2 win at Aston Villa, in which he scored twice. He now joins Harry Kane on the long list of injuries to the Tottenham squad.

Speaking on the latest setback to his team, Jose Mourinho said:

 I’m not going to count on him again this season,” 

“If he plays two or three games then it’s because he [Tottenham’s press officer] is very optimistic, and I hope he is right. But, in my mind, I’m not thinking about that”, Mourinho added. 

“We are going to miss him. The club wrote a nice statement. If I was the one to write the statement, I would write differently.”

Son’s absence means 27-year-old Brazilian Lucas Moura, 22-year-old Dutchman Steven Bergwijn, signed in January, and Republic of Ireland international Troy Parrott are Tottenham’s only fit forwards, though Mourinho believes 18-year-old Parrott “is not ready” to play at senior level.

“The situation couldn’t be worse. That is obvious,” added the Portuguese. “There is nothing we can do. We are going to play with the players we have available.

I was worried about not having attacking options on the bench, now I don’t have attacking options on the pitch.

“My thoughts are that Troy Parrott is not ready and [19-year-old English winger] Ryan Sessegnon is not a striker.

“No strikers, no market. Nothing. The only help we can have is our crowd, the Tottenham supporters. That is the only thing I ask because to the players I cannot ask more than what they are giving.”
