Jose Mourinho fears that Tottenham are set to lose Harry Kane “for some period” after the forward sustained a hamstring injury in the recent defeat by Southampton.
Kane limped off at St Mary’s just seconds after having a goal disallowed for offside late in the second half. The striker has since undergone scans to determine the severity of the injury, though Mourinho has admitted he is expecting “bad news”.
“I don’t know yet, I think maybe later today we have news,” Mourinho said in his press conference on Friday.
“I think we’re going to lose him for some period…I’m totally convinced of that. “But if you ask me just my feeling, good news or bad news, I am more bad news than good news, what the player felt, Harry Kane leaving a match the way he did.
“He didn’t think twice, didn’t take him two seconds to realise the severity of the situation.”
Mourinho added that Kane is “irreplaceable” but insisted he is “not thinking about the [transfer] market”. He also admitted there was a possibility that Christian Eriksen, who continues to be linked to Manchester Unitd, could be sold this month.
