Tottenham head coach Jose Mourinho spoke of the injury to forward Harry Kane, who was replaced in the 20th round of the EPL game against Liverpool at halftime (1-3).
“Injuries to both knees. Thiago fouled approximately in the first, and in the second, I don’t know precisely. Yet he has both ankle injuries, the second one being worse than the first. “He’s going to miss a few weeks, I’m not going to tell you exactly,” Mourinho told the BBC.
Some players are not able to be substituted. Nothing can be accomplished when that occurs. But I know we have to keep fighting because we can’t do anything else.
In Gameweek 20 of the Premier League, Tottenham forward Harry Kane could be out for a few weeks after injuring both ankles in his side’s loss to Liverpool.
At half-time, Kane, who has a history of ankle problems, was replaced by Erik Lamela.
Before taking a hit to the left, the England skipper first injured his right knee.
Following a challenge with Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson, the 27-year-old Kane needed treatment on his left ankle after landing awkwardly. In an earlier challenge against Liverpool mid-fielder Thiago Alcantara, Kane also injured his right ankle.
Jose Mourinho, the manager of Spurs, said that Kane was dealing with the first injury but couldn’t cope with both.
Mourinho said: “The second injury was worse than the first one. He was coping with one but couldn’t cope with both. For Harry to leave a game when the team is losing is a nothing injury.”
