Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has given an update on his current injury situation.
The 25-year-old is currently sidelined with ankle ligament damage that he sustained in the final minutes of the 1-0 defeat to Manchester United at Wembley on January 13th.
Kane has missed Tottenham’s last five matches in all competitions which has seen Spurs win three out of three in the Premier League and exit both domestic cup competitions without their talisman.
He has spent the last few days in the Bahamas undergoing some warm weather rehabilitation and then jetted off to Atlanta with his fiancee, brother and other members of his family to watch his beloved New England Patriots take on the LA Rams in the Super Bowl.
Kane was asked whether his rehabilitation was ahead of schedule, but the forward is remaining coy on when he could return.
Spurs expect him to return to training early next month, but did admit that his ankle feels good at the moment which will give some Spurs fans hope he could return earlier than expected.
He told Sky Sports: “It’s going well. I went away for some warm weather training and we’re stepping it up, [we will] see next week how we go, start to get the balls out and just see how the ankle reacts,”
“I never put a time on any of my injuries.
“It is just about how it feels. The ankle feels great at the moment, so as long as the swelling stays away and we can keep progressing that would be great.”
“I have been watching the last couple of games [Watford and Newcastle]. It’s been nerve-wracking watching them but a couple of great wins,” he added
“Obviously, I want to be there helping my team but you have got to have a positive mindset. I am just trying to stay as positive as possible. Hopefully I will be back as soon as possible.”
