Tottenham fans react as Mourinho provides Harry Kane update

Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has suggested Harry Kane will be seen again this season, despite suggestions to the contrary.

The striker is recovering from surgery on his hamstring after he ruptured it against Southampton on New Year’s Day.

The club had initially said Kane would be aiming to return to training in April (official website).

To Spurs fans’ dismay, a leading UK orthopaedic surgeon recently stated he would be surprised if Kane was seen back in action this season, having performed the same operation the 26-year-old 75 times on other people.

“I would expect it to be six months before he could return to action,” Dr Chris Wilson said (Daily Mail).

Despite his view, Mourinho has now suggested Kane is on course to play again in 2019/20.

He said (Guardian): “The Leicester match [May 9]. Maybe we need that match for something. To be fourth, to be fifth, to be sixth. Maybe he can help us in this match. I hope. Is that the best-case scenario at the moment? Yes, I think so.”

Before his injury Kane had been enjoying another solid goalscoring season for Spurs, bagging 17 in 25 games across all competitions.

His injury saw Spurs scrambling to sign a striker in January, something they were ultimately unsuccessful with.
