Jose Mourinho has made jokes Peter Crouch can be drafted to solve his peak crisis in Tottenham.

With Harry Kane also on the sidelines for some time, Mourinho has now closed a shortage of options with the transfer window.
Peter Crouch has made jokes that he is ready to fill in for Tottenham in the midst of their peak crisis
The 39-year-old had two spells in Tottenham before his retirement in Burnley last summer
At the press conference on Tuesday, he was asked if he knew that Barcelona was allowed to sign a striker after injuries to Ousmane Dembele and Luis Suarez.
Mourinho said he was “not aware of the possibility,” but then said “Peter Crouch,” which led to a smile from the room.
The former Spurs and England striker became an expert and then responded on Twitter: “I’m done Jose #thereturn.”
Crouch also placed a robot emoji, referring to the iconic dance celebration that would break the striker early in his career.
Although many Spurs fans said they hoped to see Crouch return to the club, it seems unlikely after his retirement last summer.
The 39-year-old had two spells on Tottenham, first as a youth player, then as a professional from 2009 to 2011.

Mourinho said the “situation could not be worse in terms of options” in the attack after the serious injuries.
Spurs confirmed the news of the injury to Son’s right elbow on Tuesday and said in a statement that he will be put aside for at least “a few weeks,” but manager Jose Mourinho admitted that he was not counting on the South Korean again this season .
The manager also confirmed that he did not believe 18-year-old Troy Parrott was ready – he will be without Harry Kane until at least April and possibly for the rest of the season.
