LONDON – Harry Kane’s absence will inevitably affect Tottenham’s performances in the coming weeks, manager Mauricio Pochettino admitted on Friday, but the Argentine is positive they can cope without the England captain.
Kane is not scheduled to return to training until early March after suffering ankle ligament damage towards the end of a 1-0 defeat to Manchester United last weekend.
However, the World Cup Golden Boot winner has a track record of returning ahead of schedule from injuries, and Pochettino hinted that could be the case once more.
Spurs face huge games against Chelsea on February 27 and Arsenal on March 2 in the Premier League, and Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on March 5.
“Harry is a very positive person, the moment he got injured, he started thinking about recovering as soon as possible,” said Pochettino on Friday.
