And the 57-year-old tactician has confirmed that that the winger picked up a hamstring injury and will miss crucial games against Chelsea and Manchester United this week.

Spurs have a date with the Blues in the EFL Cup on Tuesday, September 29 and then will travel to Old Trafford for their Premier League matchday for an encounter against the Red Devils.

In between, they will host Israeli topflight side, Maccabi Haifa in one of the Europa League playoffs on Thursday, October 1.

And Mourinho, who felt disappointed after his team dropped points at home to Newcastle last weekend said:

“It’s an injury. We’ll have him out for a while. It’s his hamstring. He [Son] is just the first one. I imagine Tuesday, Thursday another one, Sunday a couple more, but this is the respect Tottenham gets.

“Tottenham is a big club. Our history in terms of trophies is not as big as other clubs and I realise that I’m coaching with a lot of passion and love.


“I love the club and love to be here. I don’t see myself leaving and going to another club because I love it so much, but I realise now the difference between clubs with a big history and not.”
