On Thursday evening, Tottenham Hotspur’s official website revealed that Harry Kane had suffered ‘a significant lateral ligament injury to his left ankle’ during Tuesday night’s Champions League clash with Manchester City.
Kane suffered the problem in a challenge with Fabian Delph and it seems unlikely that the 6 ft 2 striker will be able to play again this season.
Tottenham have not actually ruled the England captain out of the remainder of the campaign, but it seems improbable that he will be able to feature over the next month or so.
It is a bitter blow to the club’s chances of securing a top-four finish in the Premier League, in addition to their hopes of reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League.
It is certainly not the news that the club’s supporters wanted and a number took to social media on Thursday evening to reveal their thoughts.
A selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:
That ankle ligament will plague Kane for the rest of his career sadly. Rest up and see you 100% in August! #OneOfOurOwn

Just when it seems that things are going well, we get doomed all of a sudden. Are we cursed that bad??!!! First Carabao cup, then FA and now we are gonna get thrown out of the Champions league too. Top 4 rank too in danger.
