Mauricio Pochettino is hoping an ankle injury Harry Kane suffered against Bournemouth does not turn out to be serious.
England striker Kane was forced off in the first half of Tottenham’s 4-1 win at Bournemouth and will undergo a scan on Monday.
It immediately led to fears of a serious problem for Kane ahead of this summer’s World Cup, not to mention important games for his club.
But Spurs manager Pochettino insisted it was too soon to know the extent of the injury – which was to the same ankle he injured previously.
Pochettino said during his post-match press conference: “We need to wait until tomorrow because we need to make a scan of his ankle.
“Of course he suffered an injury that is in the same ankle that he suffered before. But we hope that it’s not a massive issue.
“He felt that when he ran and twisted his ankle that it was impossible to stay on the pitch.
“Harry has a great character and is always positive, happy with the victory for the team, of course disappointed with his problem.
“But if you’re positive you start the recovery from injury from now.”
Kane’s Spurs and England team-mate Dele Alli also picked up what appeared to be a groin problem.
But Pochettino said: “I don’t believe that it’s a big issue.
“We need to, in the next week, manage him. But I don’t believe it will be a big issue.”
