Harry Kane Out For The Season With Ankle Ligament Damage

Harry Kane has been all-but ruled out for the season with ankle ligament damage – as Tottenham reveal Dele Alli has broken his hand.

The England skipper, 25, injured his troublesome ankle for the third time in his career during the 1-0 win over Manchester City.

Kane launched himself into a heavy tackle on Fabian Delph and limped off the down the tunnel before later reappearing in a foot brace.

Now Spurs have revealed Kane sustained ankle ligament damage and is likely to be ruled out for the rest of the 2018-19 season.

And Tottenham have been dealt a double-blow – after revealing Dele has also picked up a nasty knock.

A statement on the club website read: “Following assessment over the past two days, we can confirm that Harry Kane has sustained a significant lateral ligament injury to his left ankle following a challenge in our Champions League quarter-final, first leg win against Manchester City.

“Investigations are ongoing and he will continue to be assessed by our medical staff over the coming week.

“We can also confirm that examinations have revealed that Dele Alli fractured his left hand during Tuesday’s fixture.

“The England midfielder will now be assessed to determine his availability for this weekend’s fixture against Huddersfield Town.”

Dele could now choose to play against the Terriers in a cast, but may be rested for some tougher games down the line.
