Hugo Lloris rallies side with Harry Kane set to miss a month
Tottenham Captain Hugo Lloris has admitted that losing Harry Kane is a blow to Spurs, but the French goalkeeper has insisted they have the quality to get through without him.
Kane was injured in the 1-0 loss against Manchester United with his ankle swollen up and reports indicate that the striker might miss upto four weeks. Mauricio Pochettino would have to rely on Fernando Llorente, Vincent Janssen, Lucas Moura, in the frontline.
“We all know how important Harry is in our team, but he is not all of our team,” said Lloris. “Football is about the team and every player is ready to help the team. He was quoted in the media.
“In football, during the season, you have ups and downs and you have to always adapt to those and we will see about ‘H’. But I think everybody is ready and the most important thing is the mind: being ready to fight, being ready to help, being ready to compete. It is better when you have all your best players on the field, but that can happen here or it can happen at other clubs.
“Every season is different. Every player is different. With or without him, we will see how we do. The most important thing is to prepare for the games as well as we can.
“We will see for Fulham in the next game with or without Harry, with or without Son. Throughout the whole team you have important players but the main thing is the collective. It is the only way to get trophies. It is not about one or two players, but, as you know, we all know the importance of ‘H’.”
