Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino believes that Harry Kane could play again this season, but only if the club are able to reach the final of the Champions League.

The club confirmed yesterday that the forward had sustained a “significant lateral ligament injury to his left ankle”

Kane had to be helped from the touchline to the dressing room by Spurs medical staff following a heavy challenge from Fabian Delph in the 1-0 win over Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-final first leg on Tuesday.

Pochettino told the pre-match press conference ahead of tomorrow’s fixture against Huddersfield Town that if the club made it to the final, Kane could feature.

The forward suffered a similar injury in January against Manchester United which kept him out for five matches.

The club have not placed any timescale on how long Kane is out although it did reveal that “investigations are on-going” following two days of tests which have included an MRI scan yesterday morning.

Speaking to Football.London he said: “He feels sad and disappointed like everyone at the club and of course it is a tough moment for him, tough moment for the team, tough moment for us. I was speaking to him before and we need to assess every day to properly answer to see when he can come back to train with the team.

“At the moment it is impossible to give a date. It is a similar injury to the one he suffered last time against Manchester United. We have five weeks. If we are into the final of the Champions League, maybe he will play but we’ll see. We need to assess him but of course he is not in a great place, which is normal after a few days.
