Harry Kane Set To Miss 6-8 Weeks Out With Ligament Damage
Posted by Featured Articles | Published on September 19, 2016
After suffering a nasty ankle injury in the second half of Spurs’ 1-0 victory against Sunderland, Tottenham’s star man and reigning PL Golden Boot winner, Harry Kane, is reportedly set to miss around six to eight weeks with ligament damage in his ankle. However, there is a silver lining for Spurs as it appears there is no bone break in Kane’s ankle.
Kane will miss key matches for both club and country as he set to miss out on at least three UCL group stage matches against CSKA Moscow and Bayer Leverkusen, and key Premier League matches against Manchester City and possibly the North London Derby versus rivals Arsenal. He will also miss 2018 World Cup qualifying matches with England versus Malta and Slovenia.
Harry Kane has been Spurs’ main attacking threat the past two seasons as he has totaled 48 goals in 77 premier League appearances for Spurs, including winning the golden boot last season with 25 goals. Spurs are now left to turn to new signing Vincent Janssen as the only true forward left available, who joined Spurs from AZ Alkmaar in the summer for 17,000,000 pounds. Janssen has yet to find the back of the net for Tottenham despite putting numerous positive performances off the bench and starting next to Kane.
