England captain sustain another ankle injury in a win over Citizens.

Kane strive with another ankle injury and fears of missing the rest of the season.

The England captain was hurt in a challenge with Manchester City left-back Fabian Delph early in the second half of Spurs’ Champions League quarter-final first-leg victory. The two players clashed on the touchline in front of the dugouts, with Delph winning the ball, but standing on Kane’s left ankle as he followed through with the kick.

Harry kane, who exited the stadium on crutches, left the field immediately after suffering the injury and had to be helped down the tunnel by members of Spurs’ medical team. He look set to leave number of upcoming fixtures. He says he is “gutted” amid fears he could miss the rest of the season after suffering another ankle injury during Tottenham’s win over Manchester City on Tuesday.

Kane, who hurt the same ankle against Manchester United on January 13, it was an injury that kept him out for over a month, will be assessed in the coming days. He tweeted from his official Twitter account on Wednesday:

Gutted to go off injured but every setback is a chance to come back stronger than ever. Big finish from the boys to go on and win! #COYS #UCL”

However, the full extent of the damage to the forward could not be known until the swelling has gone down around his ankle.

When Asked to Spurs manager after the 1-0 win whether he feels Kane could miss the rest of the season, Mauricio Pochettino said:

Yes. We need to check tomorrow, but it looks the same, a similar issue (to that he suffered against United). I’m very sad, very disappointed, and it’s going to be tough for the rest of the season. We hope it’s not a big issue but there’s not much time to recover. He’s twisted his ankle and we will see how he reacts in the next few hours.”

Spurs are in the midst of a pivotal run of fixtures as they battle for a place in the top four of the Premier League and the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Kane’s injury will not stop Tottenham thinking they can get a result at Manchester City, according to pundits Danny Murphy and Stuart Pearce. They both reacted to Kane’s injury on The Debate  but maintained that Pochettino’s side can progress without him.

Murphy said,

Despite Kane’s injury they’ll be quietly confident. Tottenham have something to hang onto and still have pace on the break to catch City out,”

Author’s take:

Victory always come with a price and Kane was forced off with an ankle injury. Loosing one of the best player is always a big blow for any team and it’s manager yet Spurs have enough striker to hit and run and if Spurs want to maintain their name in the table they have to perform better without kane in the upcoming fixtures.
