Former Manchester United winger Ryan Giggs has blamed the intense fixture scheduling over the Christmas period for Harry Kane’s injury.

The Spurs striker pulled up clutching his left hamstring during the 75th minute of the 1-0 defeat at Southampton on New Year’s Day when attempting to level the score.

Giggs claimed that he knew it was a significant injury when he saw Kane hobbling off the St Mary’s pitch and compared the severity of the problem a hamstring injury which Michael Owen suffered during his career where the tendon came off the bone.

The Welsh boss estimated that such an injury is likely to sideline a player for five or six months which would rule Kane out for the remainder of the Premier League campaign and also his involvement in the Euros.

Kane underwent surgery to repair the ruptured tendon with the club expecting him to return to training in April (Spurs official).

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. So Giggs thinks he’ll be out for 5-6 months yet the surgeon who did the operation reckons he’ll be back in April. This surgeon has done more of these operations than anyone else. I know who I believe. I believe the expert!
