Tottenham Hotspur

Kane set to be KO'd for season

11th April 2019, 19:53

Harry Kane is set for a long spell out after Tottenham confirmed he has a "significant lateral ligament injury" to his left ankle.

England and Spurs have been sweating over the striker's fitness ever since he was withdrawn in the second half of Tottenham's Champions League win over Manchester City on Tuesday.

And the news does not appear to be good for the 25-year-old, with his club painting a potentially bleak picture in a statement on Thursday night, with no timescale yet to be given.

"Following assessment over the past two days, we can confirm that Harry Kane has sustained a significant lateral ligament injury to his left ankle following a challenge in our Champions League quarter-final, first-leg win against Manchester City," Tottenham said.

"Investigations are ongoing and he will continue to be assessed by our medical staff over the coming week."

Kane vowed to come back "stronger than ever" on Wednesday, in the wake of his second injury of the season and a fifth in two and a half years.

"Gutted to go off injured but every setback is a chance to come back stronger than ever. Big finish from the boys to go on and win!" he wrote on Twitter.

Internationally, Kane was set to lead England into this summer's Nations League Finals in Portugal. It remains to be seen what, if any part, he will now play for the Three Lions.
