LONDON – Tottenham Hotspur announced on Tuesday that its striker Harry Kane is expected to be sidelined until March due to an ankle injury.
Kane hurt his ankle during his team’s 1-0 defeat to Manchester United in a Premier League matchday 22 contest held at Wembley stadium on Sunday.
“Following preliminary assessments, we can confirm that Harry Kane has damaged ligaments in his left ankle, sustained during Sunday’s match,” Tottenham said on its official Twitter account.
“He will continue to be monitored by our medical staff as he commences rehabilitation and is expected to return to training in early March,” the statement added.
The international star will miss Tottenham’s both legs in the UEFA Champions League against Germany’s Borussia Dortmund scheduled for Feb. 13 and March 5.
Kane is still tied with Liverpool’s talisman Mohamed Salah and Arsenal’s forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as the Premier League’s top scorers this season, with 14 goals each.
The international star has netted a total of 20 goals for the Spurs in 31 appearances in all competitions this season.
