Londres.- Harry Kane, delantero del Tottenham Hotpurs, estará varias semanas de baja tras lesionarse en ambos tobillos en la derrota por 1-3 ante el Liverpool.
El delantero inglés tuvo que ser atendido en dos ocasiones en la primera parte, una por cada tobillo, y finalmente se retiró al vestuario en el descanso.
«La segunda lesión fue peor que la primera. Podía resistir una, pero no las dos. Para que Harry se fuera de un partido en el que íbamos perdiendo tenía que ser algo más que una molestia», apuntó José Mourinho en rueda de prensa.
Los tobillos han sido el gran quebradero de cabeza en la carrera de Kane, que ya se perdió varios partidos en la temporada 2018-2019 por una importante lesión en los ligamentos. EFE
Harry Kane: Tottenham striker set to be out for a ‘few weeks’ with ankle injuries
Harry Kane injured in incidents with Thiago and Jordan Henderson during Liverpool’s 3-1 win at Tottenham; Spurs play Chelsea next week; Kane has started all 19 of Tottenham’s Premier League games this season
Jose Mourinho fears Harry Kane will be absent for a “few weeks” after suffering two separate ankle injuries during Tottenham’s 3-1 defeat to Liverpool.
The Spurs captain was substituted at half-time after twice requiring on-field treatment.
After hobbling away from a challenge by Thiago, Kane then suffered another knock when he tangled with Jordan Henderson.
“He is injured in both ankles and he says that to cope with one pain, he probably could, but he says with both, it is very painful, very sore and both ankles are getting big in both feet,” Mourinho told BT Sport.
“He couldn’t [carry on]. He is a guy with a good sacrifice spirit, he can fight against pain, but it was difficult for him.”
Although Mourinho told the BBC that Kane would be ruled out for “a few weeks”, he subsequently added in his post-match press conference: “You know, for Harry to leave a game, when he wants to play always and with the team losing, it is not a nothing injury. For how long I cannot tell you, I don’t know, we have to wait and see.”
Kane was replaced by Erik Lamela at the break at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, with Spurs going on to concede two second-half goals from Trent Alexander-Arnold and Sadio Mane as they missed the chance to move fourth in the Premier League.
The England captain missed nine games of Tottenham’s campaign last season after suffering a serious hamstring injury against Southampton on New Year’s Day, but has started all 19 of their Premier League games this season, with back-up loan arrival Carlos Vinicius given only 24 minutes of league football to date.
England manager Gareth Southgate will be concerned over the prognosis of his talisman, with their World Cup 2022 qualifiers getting underway against San Marino at Wembley in less than two months, on March 25. skysports
