Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that Harry Kane has suffered ankle ligament damage to his right ankle.
An injury to the same ankle caused Kane to be out for seven weeks earlier in the season, during which time Tottenham scored only three goals in six matches.
According to a club statement, the injury is similar to the one he previously suffered but is not as serious which hopefully means that he will be back in action in under seven weeks.
A post on the Premier League club’s official Twitter feed read: “We can confirm that @HKane sustained ligament damage to his right ankle during Sunday’s FA Cup win against Millwall.
“The injury is similar to the one suffered by the forward against Sunderland in Sept last year, however it is not considered to be as severe.
“Harry will continue to be assessed by our medical staff while he undergoes his rehabilitation at our Training Centre.”
