Tottenham Hotspur have announced that star striker Harry Kane has sustained damage to his lateral ligaments in his right ankle and is expected to return to first team training in April.
The length of how long the forward will be out of action for is vague due to the wording of the official statement from the club. The words “expected” and “return to first team training next month” stand out to me as in theory, Kane’s next game for us could be in May.
Kane picked up the injury in a challenge with Bournemouth keeper Asmir Begovic during the first half of the 4-1 win at the Vitality Stadium and as a minimum is expected to miss the matches agaisnt Swansea City, Chelsea, Stoke and possibly Manchester City (The Guardian are running a story claiming that Kane will be out for four weeks).
Hopefully Son will continue his rich vein of form in front of goal, but we need the likes of Eriksen, Dele, Lamela and co to also step up.
Below is the official statement from the club:
