January 7th, according to the Times, replacing Conte to attend the FA Cup pre-match press conference
Spurs assistant coach Stellini answered questions about the FA Cup. He said that Kane will still play in tonight’s FA Cup game against Portsmouth.
Kane still looks set to start Tottenham’s game against League One Portsmouth today, having started every game for the club this season.
The FA Cup third round against lower divisions seemed the ideal opportunity to rest the England captain, who has already started 25 games for Spurs in all competitions.
Tottenham assistant Strini, who replaced Conte at the press conference, said: "This may be an opportunity to let him rest, but we don’t have many players to choose from, and Kane has to be there. We only have three strikers now, and we will
Use them together."
"It’s an important game in an important cup and we will respect it and put the players where they are."
"Everyone is thinking about the next step in the Premier League but we have a big game coming up. We respect the FA Cup, it’s a big trophy and we need to work hard to win it."
