Spurs could be without injured Kane for rest of the season, says Pochettino

Tottenham's Kane ruled out of Man United clash

Tottenham Hotspur boss, Mauricio Pochettino has admitted he is worried over the injury that befell striker Harry Kane during Tuesday’s Champions League match versus Manchester City.

The coach says Kane could miss the rest of the season with an ankle injury.

25-year-old Kane will have an MRI scan on Wednesday after hobbling off during their 1-0 win in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final against City.

The England captain was seen leaving the stadium on crutches, with a protective boot on his left ankle.

“It’s a worry for us,” said Pochettino.

“We are going to miss him – maybe for the rest of the season.

“We hope it is not a big issue but there is not to much time to recover. He twisted his ankle so we will see how it reacts in a few hours.”

Kane had missed a month of last season with a similar injury to the right ankle, and endured separate absences of six and four weeks during the 2016-17 campaign.

“We need to check but it looks like it is the same ankle and similar injury.

“It is very sad and very disappointing,” added the manager.

Son Heung-Min was the scorer of the only goal of the game on Tuesday, and it puts Spurs in the lead ahead of the second leg of the tie.

Both sides will play at the Etihad Stadium on April 17.
