Tottenham Hotspur chief of staff Maurizio Pochettino fears Harry Kane could miss the remainder of the season after suffering an ankle injury against Manchester City
The Spurs pulled off a 1-0 win over the Premier League rivals at their new stadium, but it could be a Pyrrhic victory should Kane fail to recover in short notice.
Tottenham’s striker had to abandon the field in the 58th minute after twisting his right ankle while tussling with Fabian Delph for the ball.
The Argentinean manager is desperate to see his best player returning to action as soon as possible, but he is skeptical about the 25-year-old’s condition.
“If you see the action, it shows he twisted his ankle and maybe damaged the ligaments again,” the 47-year-old said during the post-match conference.

“We will check in the next few days. It is so painful, but what can we do? We hope it’s not a big issue, and he can recover as soon as possible, but it doesn’t look good.”
Answering to reporter’s question whether he fears Kane could skip the rest of the season, Pochettino replied: “Yes, I am worried he will miss the rest of the season.”
The two-time Premier League top goalscorer has already spent a few weeks on the sidelines this term after picking up a similar injury against Manchester United.
