Jose Mourinho makes stunning statement about Gareth Bale after Harry's Kane injury

The Portguese gaffer insisted that Kane is irreplaceable but would have to lookupto Bale to soften the blow.

The Sours boss said:

“I don’t think he is a striker. It was something we spoke about when he joined us and he was very objective with me by saying he doesn’t feel he is a left winger or a No10 like he was before.
“The position he likes to play is where he plays every minute we give him and that is on the right side of attack.”

Kane was substituted at half time and is set to undergo scans this weekend when the swelling on his ankles has gone down to determine the extent of the injuries.

During the post-match interview Mourinho claimed Kane will be out for just a few weeks but privately Spurs medical chiefs fear it could be twice as long as that.

Mourinho added:

“Harry Kane is Harry Kane. There are players in some teams who are not replaceable.
