Kane May Be Out For the Season


Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has admitted that striker Harry Kane could be out for the rest of the season.

Kane had to be removed from Tuesday’s Champions League match against Manchester City with a left ankle injury.

In the 55th minute, the Spurs star attempted to block a clearance by Fabian Delph and the City defender inadvertently stepped on Kane’s ankle as he was following through.

Spurs went on to win the match 1-0, getting a 78th-minute goal from Son Heung-Min to give them the advantage ahead of the second leg.

But the win came at a cost, as the Spurs boss said after the game that Kane may have played his last match this season.

“It’s very, very sad. It’s going to be tough and we’re going to miss him – maybe for the rest of the season,” Pochettino told BT Sport.

Kane’s injury will be a major worry for Tottenham and for England, as the striker injured the same left ankle that he hurt back in January.
