Harry Kane says the knee injury he picked up in Tottenham’s 1-0 Europa League defeat to Gent on Thursday is not serious, saying “it should be fine”.
Kane went through 90 minutes in Belgium, regardless of picking the knock in late second half and was seen leaving Ghelamco Arena in a normal walk.
The striker look forward to face Fulham in the FA Cup fifth round tie on Sunday at Craven Cottage in West London. He will need to be assessed for the game.
Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino earlier hinted at resting Kane in the game against Fulham considering the return leg against Gent at Wembley in just a week.
“I think we need to assess some players. Harry Kane got a knock on his knee, different players too,” Pochettino said.
“We’ll see, but we’ll put out a team with aims to win and be ready again to compete.”
Tottenham would hope the knee injury to Harry Kane is something he can indeed shake-off, as the team needs him to get back to winning ways.
