Mourinho on Injured Kane: He is Optimistic

Tottenham Hotspur may have suffered a setback after Harry Kane was recently injured, but coach Jose Mourinho has revealed that the striker is hoping for a quick return.

Last Thursday, 28 January, the 27-year-old Englishman sustained damage to both of his ankles when the Spurs played against reigning English Premier League (EPL) champions, Liverpool.

The Reds went on to beat the Spurs 3-1.

As a result of his injuries, Kane – who has scored or assisted 23 of Tottenham’s 34 EPL goals this season – will most likely miss his side’s upcoming matches against Chelsea and West Brom.

However, in a video posted to the Spurs’ Twitter account on Monday, 1 February, Mourinho said that the striker could return in just two weeks.

The Portuguese manager explained: “I do not want to be super optimistic, but [Kane] is optimistic. He has the experience of some injuries in ankles and in [Kane’s] mind, it is a couple of weeks, so let’s see if he is right.”

If recovered by then, Kane could potentially partake in Spurs’ EPL match against Manchester City next Saturday, 13 February.
