Mourinho Says He Does Not Expect Steven Bergwijn To Play Again This Season
March. 10, 2020
Tottenham head coach Jose Mourinho does not expect Steven Bergwijn to play again this season as the club's injury crisis continues to escalate.
The Netherlands winger suffered a sprained ankle during Saturday's 1-1 draw at Burnley and Mourinho believes the injury is bad enough to keep him out for the rest of the campaign.
It is a crushing blow for Mourinho and Spurs on the eve of their Champions League last-16 second leg with RB Leipzig, where they have to overturn a 1-0 deficit in Germany.
Bergwijn joins Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son in the treatment room and Tottenham's attacking options look bare for a game in which they must score two goals to progress in normal time.
"Steven, I don't expect him to play this season," Mourinho said. "Can I believe it? Yes, I can."
