Harry Kane provides an injury update to fans amidst lockdown

Tottenham Hotspur fans have not seen Harry Kane on the pitch since the very first day of the new decade, when he managed 75 minutes against Southampton at St Mary’s.

When stretching to tap home a vital goal late on in the match, Kane ruptured the tendon in his left hamstring, only to see the goal ruled out for offside as he hobbled down the tunnel.

The England captain then required surgery on his hamstring to correct the issue and has been in rehabilitation ever since.

Unfortunately, Spurs supporters are unlikely to see Kane back out on the pitch for some time too, as the Premier League season is suspended until at least April 30.

However, the Coronavirus lockdown does give Kane the chance to take his time and nurse himself back to full fitness, rather than rushing back for the end of the season and the Euros with England.

Kane offered an injury update to fans during his Instagram live interview with Sky Sports’ Jamie Redknapp this week (quoted by Daily Mail).

Redknapp asked: “You haven’t played since New Year’s Day after your hamstring tear. How’s the injury?”

To which Kane replied: “So far, so good. Whenever we go back, whether it’s a few weeks, a month, two months, I should be ready to integrate with the group. There’s no rush, there’s no panic, I’m in a good place and space. I’ll just use this time to heal even more.”
