Harry Kane is going to miss the rest of the Premier League season after he suffered a significant ligament injury on his left ankle in the team’s win over Manchester City in the Champions League on Thursday.
Although Tottenham has not given any specific timeline over the return of England’s captain after his 5th ligament injury in 3 years, there is only 1 month left for the Premier League as teams fight for the top 4 finishes which is going to solidify their return for the Champions League in the next season.
Kane suffered the injury after he was trying to make a sliding challenge to the City’s left back Fabian Delph during the second half of the game which Tottenham won by 1-0 in their first leg of the quarterfinals on Tuesday.
Kane after his injury was instantly sent down the tunnel limping while his place was substituted.
Tottenham released the statement saying, “after 2 days of full assessment of the injury we can say that Harry Kane has suffered from serious damage to his left ankle’s lateral ligament. Investigations are still being carried out as he will be assessed by our medical staff in this coming week.”
The previous left ankle injury kept Kane from playing for nearly 6 weeks in January and February but he still made a return 2 weeks before he completely healed.
Currently, Tottenham is in the 6th place with 6 games remaining.
