Just when you think things were starting to get better for the Spurs… The most “Spursy” thing possible happens.
On their New Years Day loss against Southampton, Harry Kane was taken out of the game and his injury is now diagnosed as a torn hamstring. On Monday, Jose Mourinho addressed the media and said that Kane could be out for the rest of the season, and is not expected to return to training until April. With the Spurs losing their star center forward, Mourinho does not feel that he can replace Kane with either Heung-Min Son or Lucas Moura and will be looking to strengthen their attack during the January transfer window.
Kane’s injury is not only going to be a problem for Tottenham but also his national team, England. England starts its Euro 2020 campaign on June 14th against Croatia at Wembley Stadium. Luckily for The Three Lions, they are not short of options to replace the 2018 Golden Boot winner for the World Cup.
With the likes of Marcus Rashford, Raheem Sterling, Jadon Sancho, and Tammy Abraham, England manager Gareth Southgate should be able to effectively replace the goal-scoring that Kane brought the team. Although none of them possess the leadership that Kane possessed. Only time will tell to see if Kane is match fit and ready to play in the Euro 2020 tournament this summer.
