Spurs’ Harry Kane limped out in a match against Southampton last month, and this caused problems for the team upfront, especially after Heung Min Son was red-carded.
But now, his manager Jose Mourinho has revealed his return date.
Speaking to the media ahead of tonight’s FA Cup replay against Southampton, Mourinho revealed that he expects his striker back in May.
As quoted by Sky Sports, the Portuguese said: “The match against Leicester, maybe we’ll need that match for something – to be fourth, to be fifth, to be sixth, maybe we need that match for something and maybe he can help us in that match, I hope. There is no setback, nothing is happening, everything is okay. He’s having his treatment, no pressure, he keeps going, there’s no setback.
“I just think that my feeling with [Hugo] Lloris is we were all speaking about February and he came back for January. It’s better not to put any kind of expectations, any kind of pressure, let it go and let’s see.”
After beating Guardiola’s Man City 2-0, Spurs are now fifth on the Premier League log, four points behind a top-four spot.
