Kane could miss rest of season –Pochettino

Tottenham striker Harry Kane could miss the rest of the season with an ankle injury, says manager Mauricio Pochettino .

Kane , 25 , had an MRI scan on Wednesday after hobbling off during Tuesday’ s 1 – 0 win over Manchester City in the first leg of their Champions League quarter – final.
The England captain was seen leaving the stadium on crutches , with a protective boot on his left ankle.

“ It ’ s a worry for us , ” said Pochettino .
“ We are going to miss him — maybe for the rest of the season . We hope it is not a big issue but there is not too much time to recover . He twisted his ankle so we will see how it reacts in a few hours . ”

Kane had slipped as he tried to block Fabian Delph ’ s clearance on the right touchline in the second half and was substituted immediately .

He was ruled out for almost two months in January when he damaged ligaments in the same ankle during their 1 – 0 Premier League home defeat by Manchester United .
In addition , he missed a month of last season with a similar injury to the right ankle, and endured separate absences of six and four weeks during the 2016 – 17 campaign .

“ We need to check but it looks like it is the same ankle and similar injury, ” said Pochettino . “ It is very sad and very disappointing . ”
