Kane unlikely to return this season, says Pochettino

Tottenham confirm Kane has a 'significant' ankle injury

Pochettino added that he would rotate his squad against Huddersfield due to injury and fatigue but stressed the importance of picking up three points as Spurs battle to finish in the top four and secure a Champions League spot. "We'll see and we'll take a decision that is best for everyone".

Tottenham Hotspur's England striker Harry Kane suffered serious ankle ligament damage in Tuesday's 1-0 Champions League victory over Manchester City, the Premier League club said on Thursday. We feel so disappointed and it was hard to accept the situation.

"We need to assess him this afternoon and I am not too optimistic", the manager said. He broke a hand in two parts.

Spurs legend King believes that target man Llorente did perform well on his return to the side, which could be even more crucial due to Kane's injury problem.

The Champions League presents Tottenham with their final opportunity to win a piece of silverware this season, which could well prove to be vital in keeping hold of their star players in the summer.

Huddersfield were so limited in all areas, that Tottenham's make-shift line-up were able to play their way into rhythm.

A club statement reveals Kane "sustained considerable lateral ligament injury to his left ankle" while confirming Dele Alli fractured his left hand - the midfielder left the pitch clutching his left wrist in the same game.

"We wanted to provide the team with fresh legs because of the big effort against City", he told Sky Sports.

"He was so upset after the game, it was a hard moment for him", Pochettino said.

Mauricio Pochettino subsequently hinted that he was anxious Kane will be unable to play again this season and Spurs have now confirmed that the injury is indeed a serious one.

"We need to assess him every day, but we need to have proper answers to see when he can possibly start training with the team. Nothing to do with what he's (had) in the past".
