Tottenham Hotspur manager, Mauricio Pochettino, has admitted it would be a “massive” blow, if Harry Kane is sidelined by an ankle injury while Son Heung-Min is away at the Asian Cup.
Kane suffered an injury at the end of Sunday’s 1-0 defeat to Manchester United and limped off the Wembley pitch very gingerly.
Spurs will lose Son to international duty and could be without the South Korean until the competition’s final on February 1.
“It wasn’t the intention of the United player but it was a bad tackle and now he has a bit of a swelling on his ankle and he was limping after the game.
“We are going to lose Son for the Asia Cup and if Harry Kane suffers an injury, it is going to be massive for us,” Pochettino told the BBC.
