Harry Kane posts ankle injury update as he could make shock Champions League return (Photo)

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has posted an image to his Instagram account showing he seeks to recover from injury. Kane suffered a significant lateral injury to his left ankle during the Champions League quarter-final first-leg win over Manchester City at home on Tuesday. The injury was sustained as Kane tackled City’s Fabian Delph by the touchline in the second-half with the striker immediately limping off in pain and not even attempting to continue. In the latest picture posted to his Instagram, Kane can be seen with his feet up and no visible strapping, supports or casts. His manager, Mauricio Pochettino, has hinted that the England captain could make a shock return this season if Tottenham win a place in the Champions League final. "He feels sad and disappointed like everyone at the club," said the Argentinian ahead of a Premier League win over Huddersfield Town last week. "Of course it is a tough moment for him, tough moment for the team, tough moment for us. "I was speaking to him before and we need to assess every day to properly answert to see when he can come back to train with the team. "At the moment it is impossible to give a date. It is a similar injury to the one he suffered last time against Manchester United. "If we are into the final of the Champions League, maybe he will play but we'll see. We need to assess him but of course he is not in a great place, which is normal after a few days." Speaking after Tottenham's 4-3 loss to Manchester City, to secure a win on away goals, Pochettino added: "Still, we cannot say nothing. "We are going to assess him day-by-day, we’ll see. We’re not optimistic but you know Harry Kane and with Harry Kane all is possible. "We’re not going to say he won’t play again or not, we are going to assess him day-by-day."
