Harry Kane will play through ankle issue against Dinamo Zagreb

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho says despite fears of burnout, Harry Kane will start tomorrow night's Europa League last-16 second leg against Dinamo Zagreb.

The striker has been playing with an ankle problem over the past couple of weeks.

Mourinho is hoping that England manager Gareth Southgate is cautious when using Kane during the upcoming international break.

"I cannot do Gareth's work, the same way Gareth is not trying to do my work. He doesn't make any comments about my selection, he doesn't give any public opinion about who I should play or rest or give more minutes to these English players. He doesn't make any comment so I also don't feel comfortable in doing that.

"You know, I have no control, if I could choose I would love them all to go because I love my players to be involved in national teams. I think it's a question of pride for them and a plus for us as a club so we like the players to go

But of course if we could choose we wouldn't like the players to play three matches, but it's not in our hands, it's in the hands of their national team managers. There is nothing we can say.

If one of you ask me is he going to play tomorrow or is he going to rest, I answer already that he's going to play. The game is open, it's an important game for us so he plays tomorrow."
