Mauricio Pochettino confirms Harry Kane suffered ligament damage to his right ankle

Harry Kane, who netted the winner in Tottenham’s 1-0 Premier League victory over Sunderland had to be carried from the field on a stretcher after turning his ankle in a challenge with Papy Djilobodji late in the game at White Hart Lane.

“He [Kane] has injured his ankle ligaments,” Pochettino confirmed on Tuesday, amid reports the forward could face up to two months out.

“We will continue to assess him every day but don’t want to put a timeframe on it.”

Pochettino also lost Eric Dier and Mousa Dembele to apparent hamstring problems against Sunderland, although the Argentine later revealed the midfield duo were suffering from cramp.
