Mourinho participates in the Premier League competition at his former club on Sunday afternoon at Old Trafford. This will be the third time Mourinho has faced his joint successor, Ole Gunnar Solskar, since taking over the Spurs, with both sides facing mixed results in the league so far this season.
And after completing a sensational loan to bring Boleyn to Tottenham again, Mourinho has revealed that the Welshman is still struggling to regain match fitness.
“Bell can’t play tomorrow or on the weekend”, the Portuguese said in a press conference before his press was held yesterday with Europa League qualifying Maccabi Haifa.
“He’s working very hard and very professionally, but not for tomorrow [Thursday] Or this weekend.
“I believe a two-week international game will be important for him to return for the weekend after his fitness and recovery. We’ll see.”
Mourinho also confirmed that Son Hyung-min is a prime suspect, who was injured at half-time during the Spurs’ 1–1 draw with Newcastle last weekend.
“He’s a doubt for Sunday, a big doubt,” Mourinho said. “I don’t want to say that he doesn’t play and then he does because my situation is in doubt.”
United may come up against Sergio Reguillan on Sunday. The left-back arrived with a bundle from Real Madrid and made his Tottenham debut in Tuesday’s Carabao Cup win over Chelsea.
