Tottenham’s Harry Kane Says He Will “Come Back Stronger” From Ankle Injury
Harry Kane says he will “come back stronger” after an ankle injury threatened to rule the Tottenham striker out of the rest of the season.
Kane, 25, was set for an MRI scan on Wednesday after hobbling off during Tuesday’s win over Manchester City.
The England captain was seen leaving the stadium on crutches with a protective boot on his left ankle.
Manager Mauricio Pochettino said the injury was a “worry”, adding that Kane could miss the rest of the campaign.
On Wednesday, Kane tweeted: “Gutted to go off injured but every setback is a chance to come back stronger than ever.”
Kane had slipped as he tried to block Fabian Delph’s clearance on the right touchline in the second half and was substituted immediately.
Top scorer Kane has been involved in 33% of Tottenham’s goals this season, more than any other player, with 24 goals and six assists in all competitions.
But the north London club have become accustomed to playing without their main striker in recent seasons. He has missed 21 games since the start of the 2016-17 campaign with ankle injuries alone.
He was ruled out for almost two months in January, missing seven games, when he damaged ligaments in the same ankle during their 1-0 Premier League home defeat by Manchester United.
