Harry Kane was injured in Tottenham’s 1-0 Premier League win over Sunderland on September 18 and there were fears he could face a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
However, Tottenham received results of a scan prior to their Champions League away match against CSKA Moscow, with Pochettino able to report good news.
“We received the information about the scan,” he said at his pre-match media conference.
“It’s much, much, much better than we expected. It’s very positive.
“Still we cannot give a time of recover. We’re happy. I am not a doctor, it’s hard to say one, two or three weeks.”
