Jose Mourinho has spilled the beans on the extent of the injury to his talisman, stating: “If you ask me just my feeling, good news or bad news, I am more bad news than good news, what the player felt, Harry Kane leaving a match the way he did.
“He didn’t think twice, didn’t take him two seconds to realise the severity of the situation.
“I think we’re going to lose him for some time… I’m totally convinced of that.”
So… what do we all do now?
Well, Kane currently features in 47% of teams meaning that pretty much the lot of you will be forced to use one of your new January transfers already.
Needs must, people.
At £7.5m, he’ll leave you with plenty of funds to reinvest in a new striker, but how you decided to use that cash could be the difference between first and second in your mini league.
Mourinho has described Kane as “irreplaceable” to his Spurs side, so no pressure trying to replace him in your Dream Team.
In terms of alternatives that are available, Gabriel Jesus looks like the obvious one.
Jesus is probably the best value for money forward on the game at £4.3m and has scored 74 points since the start of December.
This is not the start to 2020 that any of us wanted…
