Tottenham's star striker fell awkwardly on Sunday against Millwall20:30 Sunday 12 March 2017, 20:30 12 Mar 2017
Tottenham Hotspur have been dealt a major blow with the news that striker Harry Kane could miss the remainder of the season with an ankle injury.
The England forward fell awkwardly early in Spurs' FA Cup quarter-final tie against Millwall on Sunday at White Hart Lane.
The home side coasted to a comfortable 6-0 win without their main marksman but the mood will have dampened around the white half of North London with news of Kane's injury.
He left the ground on crutches and wearing a protective boot. Speaking aftwerwards Tottenham manager Maurico Pochettino said: "It’s the same ankle as before in the Sunderland game. Now, it’s a matter of waiting. We will assess it tomorrow and, after tomorrow, we will see what happens. It’s difficult. It looks a similar situation to Sunderland. It was a similar action. It’s sure it will be difficult for him to play against Southampton on Sunday but we need to wait now and see what happens.
“Harry was in the boot afterwards because in a situation like this, the doctor is cautious. Before a scan, the doctor tries to immobilise the joint, with a boot and crutches – to try to avoid any problems.”
The striker was stretchered off during a Premier League match against Sunderland last September when he injured the same ankle.
Kane has scored 24 goals in all competitions this season and Spurs will be desperate to get their main source of goals back on the pitch as soon as possible as we enter the business end of the season.
