Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that Harry Kane could potentially be sidelined for the rest of the current campaign.
The England international picked up an ankle injury during the first-leg of the Champions League quarter-final against Manchester City last night, when he tried to block a clearance from opposing left-back Fabian Delph.
As such, he was substituted before the hour mark with the scores at 0-0, but Spurs eventually managed to seal a stunning win, with Heung-min Son finding the scoresheet with a sublime solo effort 12 minutes from time.
Speaking after the 1-0 triumph, Pochettino confirmed that the signs are not good for Kane, and he could possibly miss the remainder of the campaign as a result of the latest injury setback.
“It looks like the same ankle and a similar injury. We’re very sad. We’re maybe going to miss him for the rest of the season,” he told BT Sport which was reported through their official Twitter account.
Kane had previously been sidelined from first-team action for 40 days between January and February with a torn ankle ligament, and the period witnessed the club bow out of two Cup competitions, though they excelled in the league.
Son was the standout performer for the north London outfit in that period, and the South Korean may need to rise to the challenge once more, should Kane remain sidelined.
