Mauricio Pochettino has asserted that he is positive his Spurs team can cope without the injured Harry Kane over the next few weeks.
Kane injured his ankle right at the end of Spurs’ 1-0 home defeat to Manchester United last Sunday, and the latest reports suggest the England international striker will be out of action until March.
“We are going to see the time it takes to have the full recovery. Harry is a very positive person, the moment he got injured he started thinking about recovering as soon as possible,” Pochettino told the press ahead of his sides clash with Fulham this weekend.
“When he is one of the best strikers in Europe it is going to affect performances. We are positive we can cope and we have players who can cover his position. It won’t affect our approach to the games.”
If Kane is out until March, as reported, then he will miss some hugely vital games for the London club. The pick of the fixtures includes the EFL Cup semi-final second leg at Chelsea, a potential EFL Cup final in February, their Champions League meeting with Borussia Dortmund, and a trip to Chelsea in the Premier League.
News of Kane’s injury has compounded Spurs issues in attack, with in form forward Son Heung-min currently away on international duty with South Korea for the Asian Cup.
