This is what Harry Kane was wearing when he left Tottenham stadium, report states next steps
By Harry Sykes
Harry Kane left White Hart Lane on crutches and with his right ankle in a protective boot on Sunday evening.
Images released on Twitter showed the Tottenham talisman limping out of the stadium after sustaining what appeared to be a serious injury in their 6-0 FA Cup demolition of Millwall.
The Mail claim Spurs’ medical team will assess Kane’s ankle on Monday and he will be sent for a scan once the swelling has died down.
Tottenham are fearing the worst after manager Mauricio Pochettino revealed after the match that the injury was similar to the one the striker suffered earlier in the season when he damaged ligaments in his ankle.
Kane was out for seven weeks with the problem he sustained in September and there are fears he will now be sidelined for a similar length of time.

The 23-year-old left the field of play after just 10 minutes of Tottenham’s emphatic win, which was secured by a Son Heung-Min hat-trick and goals from Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli and Vincent Janssen, his first for the club from open play.
The possible lengthy absence of Kane would make a huge impact on Tottenham, given that he has scored an impressive 24 goals from 29 appearances in all competitions this season.
Son replaced him up front against Millwall and will need to repeat his clinical finishing against the third-tier side against higher level opposition in the weeks ahead if Spurs are to maintain their fight for a second-placed Premier League finish and FA Cup glory.
Tottenham will next face Southampton in the Premier League at White Hart Lane on Sunday as they look to maintain the pressure on runaway leaders Chelsea.
