Peter Crouch responds to Jose Mourinho’s joke that he might be needed as Tottenham suffer striker crisis with Heung-min Son now injured


Feb. 18, 2020

Fear not, Tottenham fans, Peter Crouch is ready to come out of retirement and solve the club’s injury crisis.
The former Spurs striker made himself available to Jose Mourinho following the news that Heung-min Son could miss the rest of the season with an arm fracture.
Son joins Harry Kane on the sidelines, leaving Mourinho without a recognised senior striker for the foreseeable future.
In his press conference on Tuesday, the Tottenham boss was asked about the possibility of signing a striker despite the transfer window being closed – perhaps a free agent.
Mourinho chuckled as he suggested that Crouch could potentially be the answer to all of his problems.
Following his retirement at the end of last season, Spurs could technically sign Crouch should he decide to put his boots back on, sort of like Manchester United did with Paul Scholes in 2012.
And it’s no laughing matter for the former England international, who took to Twitter to insist that he will head the call if necessary.
Crouch, 39, responded to a video of Mourinho’s press conference with the simple message: “I’m ready Jose #thereturn”
