Tottenham manager, Mauricio Pochettino says striker Harry Kane “may be out for the rest of the season” with an ankle injury.

Kane will have an MRI scan on Wednesday after hobbling off in Tuesday’s 1-0 win over Manchester City in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final.

The England captain was seen leaving the stadium using crutches, with a protective boot on his left ankle.

“It’s a worry for us,” said Pochettino.

“We are going to miss him – maybe for the rest of the season. We hope it is not a big issue. But there is not to much time to recover. He twisted his ankle so we will see how it reacts in a few hours.”

Kane had slipped as he tried to block Fabian Delph’s clearance on the right touchline in the second half and was substituted immediately.

He was ruled out for almost two months in January when he damaged ligaments in the same ankle during their 1-0 Premier League home defeat by Manchester United.

In addition, he missed a month of last season with a similar injury to the right ankle, and endured separate absences of six and four weeks during the 2016-17 campaign.
