For those who are not looking for ‘All or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur’ spoilers from the upcoming episodes of the Amazon documentary, look away now.
Episode four of Amazon’s ‘All or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur’ documentary, which hit Prime Video late last night, gave an insight into the club’s horror injury crisis in January 2020.
In a fateful New Year’s Day match against Southampton at St Mary’s, Tottenham lost Harry Kane, Moussa Sissoko, and Tanguy Ndombele to long-term injuries.
The former two eventually had to undergo surgery on their respective problems and were forced to sit on the sidelines for months on end.
The docu-series focuses particularly on Harry Kane, who represented Tottenham’s only senior natural goalscorer at the time.
The cameras caught the exact moment that Tottenham’s physio staff members told Kane that his injury was just about as bad as it could possibly be, revealing that surgery could be in his future.
Kane looks visibly distraught and shocked by the news in the injury room before opening up to the cameras later on.
He said (All or Nothing – Episode 4 – 24 minute): “When it happened, I felt like a pop in my hamstrings, but I’ve never had a muscle injury before so, obviously I knew I’d done something but I didn’t realise whether it was that bad. It’s difficult to accept but it’s something that you can’t control. I think the scary thing is that it goes so quick. The seasons go so quick. The time goes so quick. I’m 27 in the summer and it feels like I started last year. That’s the thing when you’re so non-stop, you don’t have time to process it all and it’s like onto the next one and all of a sudden you’re getting to 32, 33 and you’re thinking ‘I ain’t got too long left’.”
In reaction to the news, Heung-min Son told Kane in the dressing room: “I’m telling you, it’s because of the schedule.”
Kane replied, “The schedule is crazy. How many injuries have we had? Not just us, every club.”
