Kane may have to consider surgery, says surgeon
Tottenham forward Harry Kane may have to consider surgery on his injured ankle, a leading surgeon has said.
Kane suffered a "significant lateral ligament" injury to his left ankle during Spurs' 1-0 Champions League win over Manchester City on Tuesday and is unlikely to play again this season.
The England captain is susceptible to ankle damage-this is his fifth such injury since 2016 and the second to his left joint this year.
Surgeon Mark Davies, a leading specialist at the London Foot and Ankle Centre, who has operated on Premier League footballers, said going under the knife could help restore the strength of Kane's ligament to what it was before his first injury.
