"It's one thing not to get hurt, it's another to be ready to play football," Mourinho told Sky Sports.

"For them, there are many, many, many weeks of injuries and when the injuries were almost over, we stopped training."

The Premier League has been suspended since March 13 because of the coronavirus pandemic, but a return to action is expected in June 8th, which would require thorough training to begin on May 18.

Tottenham have made a limited number of pitches available for the team's squad for individual training sessions, but Mourinho is unsure whether Kane, midfielder Sissoko and winger Bergwijn will be ready for any resumption.

"I don't know, they don't know, we have to wait for the official and correct permission for the players to train again in groups to see if they can return to the normal level of competition," said the Portuguese.

"So if we play this season, in the remaining nine games, it would be good for all of us, it would be good for football, it would be good for the Premier League if players of that quality could play the remaining games."

Top-tier clubs will meet on Friday to discuss options for a restart, with any restart planned to be free from spectators.

"If we play football behind closed doors, I would like to think that football is never behind closed doors," added Mourinho.

"With cameras, it means that millions and millions are watching. So if one day we enter this empty stadium, it will not be empty at all."
