Harry Kane gets bad news over future ankle problems

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane suffered his fifth ankle injury in the last five years on Tuesday.

The 25-year-old immediately headed down following a collision with Manchester City’s Fabian Delph.

According to the Telegraph, Kane’s season is over along with his chances of playing in this summer’s Nations League finals.

Now it has emerged that Kane’s ankle problems could get worse, according to foot and ankle trauma expert, .

The Englishman has now suffered the same injury on five occasions – against Sunderland, Millwall, AFC Bournemouth, Manchester United and now Manchester City.

Speaking about the injury, Mauricio Pochettino had this to say:
