Tottenham, Mourinho Harry Kane fears come true
3 January 2020
EUROPE- Tottenham Hotspurs confirmed that striker Harry Kane has torn his hamstring after Jose Mourinho fears that the injury would be longterm.
Tottenham released a statement with the news that read:
“Following assessment today (Friday), we can confirm that Harry Kane suffered a tear in his left hamstring during our New Year’s Day fixture against Southampton.
“Our medical staff will continue to review the injury with treatment ongoing”.
Kane came off injured in the loss against Southampton clutching his left hamstring with Mourinho pessimistic with the outcome.
“I don’t know yet, I think maybe later today we have news,” Mourinho said. “But if you ask me just my feeling, good news or bad news, I am more bad news than good news, what the player felt, Harry Kane leaving a match the way he did. He didn’t think twice, didn’t take him two seconds to realise the severity of the situation.”
Speaking ahead of their FA Cup third-round trip to Middlesbrough this weekend, the Portuguese focussed on the fit and available Heung Min-Son after serving a ban.
“Everybody knows who he is, what he is, what he means for the team, the fans, the club. His quality, the routines that the team has been playing with him, every minute of every game he doesn’t play we miss, so every match that he doesn’t play we’re going to miss him. But I don’t want to be crying here all the time, I want to focus now on the players that are available. Now Son is back I prefer to speak about Son than Harry.”
