Tottenham Hotspur will now likely have to find a way to cope without their star striker and stand-in captain, Harry Kane, as the player suffered a hamstring injury this week.
Kane clutched the muscle as he poked home an equalising goal against Southampton, which was then ruled out for offside anyway.
Harry hobbled straight down the tunnel and was later seen leaving St Mary’s on crutches, an all too familiar sight for Spurs fans.
In terms of like-for-like replacements at the club, Mourinho simply does not have anyone, with Lucas Moura and Heung Min Son able to cover, and young Troy Parrott waiting in the wings.
Luckily, the Kane injury has lined up with Heung Min Son’s return from suspension after he received a red card against Chelsea for violent conduct.
Mourinho seemed dismissive of using the January transfer window to find a Kane replacement, stating that his job is to work with the existing players.
Charlie Eccleshare reports that Jose Mourinho said:
January transfer to bring in cover for Kane? I come to work with the players are available, and I’m not thinking about the market. My job is to work with, in this case, a small group of players. The players I work with are permanently recovering.
