Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has said that he hopes that the hamstring injury sustained by Harry Kane is a lesson for the Football Association on fixture pile up.
Kane had to undergo surgery to repair a ruptured tendon in his left hamstring and the club revealed that the striker will not return to training until April.
There were some reports suggesting that the 26-year-old could be set to miss the Euros this summer (Alan Brazil’s Sports Breakfast Show on TalkSport -15/01/20 at 6:45 am) but recent updates have revealed that the striker could be back in action in around 10 weeks (The Telegraph).
That would mean that Kane would be back in time for the final few games of the season.
Klopp said that he felt sorry for the Spurs striker and suggested that if the England captain were to miss the Euros, that could make the Football Association reconsider the fixture pile-up during this time of the year and the absence of a full winter break.
He told The Guardian: “I feel massively for Harry Kane, I now hear he may not be in the Euros. For the first time some English people in the FA may think: ‘Oh, too many games maybe.’ Something has to happen for them to really start thinking about it.”

Regardless of the question of a fixture pile-up, Kane has simply played too many games for the past five or six years and his body is now starting to catch up with him. We desperately need to sign a top centre forward who can take the pressure off Kane and allow him to have a little more rest.
