“It is always a worry” – Reputed pundit concerned about Tottenham star’s injury history

Gary Lineker is concerned about the state of Harry Kane’s ankle after another injury. The Tottenham striker picked up the problem in the defeat to Manchester United, and the Daily Mail reports this was his fourth ankle issue in the past two years.

Kane is expected to make a return later this month with Mauricio Pochettino claiming he could face Burnley. Lineker was speaking to Goal (h/t Daily Mail) and claimed that a recurring injury is always a problem:

“It is always a worry when you get a recurring injury and there is clearly a little weakness in there.”

The former England striker added that having an ankle problem is actually better than a calf or hamstring issue, but constant injuries will take a toll.

“You can roll your ankle and get away with it to an extent, but the more you do it, the more you worry the weakness will become a problem.”

The Englishman added that the Tottenham star could return for the second leg of the Champions League tie against Borussia Dortmund. Kane has made it a habit of returning before schedule and it hasn’t hurt his goal-scoring abilities.

Lineker is within his rights to be concerned about the state of Kane’s ankles but most of the injuries have been caused due to impacts or twists.

Nobody can avoid such problems on the pitch and fortunately for us, Kane is just a few weeks away from his return.
