Just when we all thought things couldn't get any worse for Tottenham Hotspur, the club announced on Thursday that superstar striker Harry Kane will be forced to undergo surgery to clean up damage to his left hamstring and that this will make him miss up to three months of playing time.
Kane sustained his knock during Tottenham's 1-0 loss to Southampton back on New Years Day. And while manager Jose Mourinho was not willing to go too in-depth about the injury in the immediate days following the initial injury, he did tell the press on Sunday that "it is not a small injury."
With Kane now on the shelf, Mourinho will need to be a little crafty as to how he will set up his formations moving forward. Guys like Heung-min Son and Lucas Moura will both certainly be leaned on more, but Erik Lamela and even Ryan Sessegnon could also be in the mix as well.
This unfortunate update comes just two days after Spurs announced that 30-year-old midfielder Moussa Sissoko will be out for about three months with a hamstring injury of his own. If the timeline between Kane and Sissoko is congruent, Tottenham's number 10 could miss around 13 matches including crucial fixtures against Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea, Wolverhampton, and Manchester United, not to mention both legs against RB Leipzig in the Champions League Round-of-16.
