Lloris: Players are worried about Kane…

Club captain Hugo Lloris admits Tottenham’s players are “a bit worried” as they wait for news on Harry Kane’s injury – but he feels the squad is strong enough to cope with any enforced absences this season.

Kane was stretchered off during yesterday’s 1-0 home win over Sunderland at White Hart Lane, having scored the decisive goal, and left the stadium on crutches, wearing a protective boot.

Mauricio Pochettino said after the game that he feared the striker had suffered ankle ligament damage, and new recruit Vincent Janssen – who was signed to provide cover for Kane – is now set for a run in the side. The only question is how long that run will be.

“We just hope it’s not too bad,” said Lloris. “It’s true that if you look at the images, we can be a bit worried, but all the medical staff are going to try to bring him back as quick as possible. We need to wait for the diagnostics.

“We have a competitive team and are fully confident in every player. When one player is missing, it gives an opportunity to another player to bring his skills, energy and quality.

“This is the story of the season and that’s why we need all the players involved to be committed to the club, because when the manager needs you, you need to respond well.

“We have a lot of international players. We have a good mix between experienced players and young talented players, but the only way to know [how strong our squad is] is to see at the end of the season.”
