Tottenham have been hit with a severe blow in their Champions League win over Manchester City as their captain Harry Kane suffered an ankle injury and had to leave the pitch.
The Englishman is now on the verge of missing the rest of the season although Tottenham have not made an official statement on their superstar.
Harry Kane was involved in a challenge with Manchester City's Fabian Delph in the 55th minute and left the stadium in crutches.
“I am worried he will miss the rest of the season.
"It doesn’t look good. If you see the action, it shows he twisted his ankle and maybe damaged the ligaments again.
“We will check in the next few days. It is so painful but what can we do? We hope it’s not a big issue and he can recover as soon as possible,'' Spurs boss Pochettino said according to UK Sun.
Totteham are battling it out for a spot in the Premier League's top four as well their European dreams and manager Mauricio Pochettino now has limited options.
In the absence of Harry Kane for their subsequent games, Son Heung-min may be forced into a more central role for Tottenham.
