Former Tottenham midfielder Chris Waddle has claimed that Harry Kane’s hamstring injury could be a blessing in disguise for the striker as it allows him the chance to have some much-needed rest ahead of the Euros in the summer.
The club confirmed last month that Kane underwent surgery to repair a ruptured tendon in his left hamstring last month and that he was not expected to return back to training until April.
Kane has now flown to the Caribbean for warm-weather training (Daily Mail) and posted a video of himself continuing his rehabilitation on Friday.
Jose Mourinho has revealed that he hopes to have the Spurs number 10 available in time for the Premier League clash against Leicester City on the 9th of May (Football.London).
Waddle believes the break for Kane might do England’s chances in Euros a world of good and claimed that Spurs appear to be coping without their talismanic centre forward.
In his column for Racing Post, Waddle wrote: “I think Harry Kane’s injury is a blessing in disguise for England – and I don’t think it’s proving such a hindrance for Jose Mourinho either.
“Kane last played a game on New Year’s Day and if you believe Mourinho it’s quite possible he won’t appear again until May.
“From a Tottenham perspective that might sound like a nightmare scenario – although it’s interesting that even without him they are up to fifth in the Premier League and still in the FA Cup.”
Spurs Web Opinion
Kane has played a lot of football for club and country over the last five years and it is clear that it is starting to take a toll on his body. While the rest should theoretically do him good, the likelihood is that he will be rushed back and thrown straight into the team when he announces he’s ready due to our failure to sign another forward last month.
