Former Premier League boss reveals worrying details about Harry Kane’s injury

Tottenham confirmed a week ago that Harry Kane had to undergo surgery after rupturing a tendon in his left hamstring.

Spurs fans’ worst fears came true when the club announced that the star striker is not expected to return to training until April.

However, it turns out there could be more bad news regarding the injury to Kane. Former England manager Sam Allardyce has now revealed that heard that the striker’s injury is potentially worse than what has been communicated.

While the 65-year-old did admit that he might be wrong, he claimed that the England captain’s injury might be severe enough to see him miss this summer’s European Championships.

Speaking to Alan Brazil’s Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT, Allardyce said, “I doubt it [that he’ll be fit for the Euros]. I’m hearing and I don’t know how true it is that the hamstring has torn off the bone.”

Allardyce, who hasn’t had a managerial job since parting ways with Everton last summer, also insisted that Tottenham had little control over Kane’s decisions regarding the operation and recovery.

When asked why it took so long for the striker to go under the knife, he added: “Don’t forget, Harry’s in control. They can advise Harry, but Harry does what he wants in the end and decides who he wants and decides where to go. And there’s nothing Tottenham can do about that as a football club.

“Pogba has done that at Manchester United, hasn’t he?! He has decided who is going to do the op on his ankle, where it’s going to happen and who’s going to do it.”

Let’s hope what Allardyce has heard isn’t true. If not, Kane could face quite a battle to get back to the level he was at. If we are to have any chance of finishing in the top four this season, then it is essential that we sign a striker this month. Moura doesn’t have enough of a physical presence to play upfront in games where we don’t dominate possession.
