Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane suffers ankle ligament injury

Kane limped off in the first half with his side trailing 1-0 at Bournemouth on Sunday, before Mauricio Pochettino's men bounced back to win 4-1 and move up to third in the Premier League. "We will see because he's going to play for the national team [in the upcoming friendlies] and players are not machines", Pochettino said.

An ankle injury, suffered in November, has disrupted his season and his last three appearances have come in the FA Cup.

Tottenham will be looking to book their place in the semi finals of the FA Cup when they take on Swansea at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

A number of players who are slightly older than Alli have established themselves in the big leagues, such as Manchester City's Leroy Sane, but Pochettino insisted: "Last season, who was the best?"

According to Hamann, however, Bayern are keen to turn to Pochettino if Heynckes made a decision to end his interim term at the Allianz Arena at the end of the season. "This is the only option we have to try and achieve that", he added. "But in terms of the project I think we are doing fantastic".

"Of course, we are going to miss Harry because it's obvious he is one of the best, but we are calm and relaxed because we have enough quality to play and win games".

He is on pace to pass both Peyton Manning and Brett Favre in 2018 to become the NFL's all-time passing yardage leader. The deal includes $27 million in guaranteed money and could pay out as much as $50 million through the 2019 season.

"We are talking about one of the best strikers in the world", the Argentine told reporters on Thursday (March 15).

"It's not a long-term injury and you can keep your form and that helps you to be fit when you fix your problem".

"The expectation is to recover as soon as possible". "You're going to read all the info in the media - that's one thing".

"I don't understand why there is still that feeling [of criticism]".

It has been 10 years since Tottenham last won a trophy - the League Cup in 2008 - and there is a perception in some quarters that Pochettino needs to deliver silverware to underline the club's progress under his watch.
