Gary Lineker urges Harry Kane to be patient on return from injury

Tottenham Hotspur legend Gary Lineker fears that Harry Kane could be rushed back from his latest ankle injury, with the striker in line to return in the next fortnight.

Gary Lineker has said that he fears Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane could do himself further damage if he rushes his latest return from injury.

The England international has spent the past month on the sidelines with ankle ligament damage sustained in the defeat to Manchester United.

Kane, who has suffered similar injuries in the past, was initially ruled out of action until the middle of March.

Speaking earlier this week, however, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino revealed that the prolific striker could be back for the trip to Burnley in two weeks' time.

Lineker has urged both the player and club to remain patient, though, telling Goal.com: "It is always a worry when you get a recurring injury and there is clearly a little weakness in there.

"No player wants to have an injury that keeps cropping up, but ankles are not as bad as having a recurring calf problem or a hamstring issue, as they can be hard to overcome.

"You can roll your ankle and get away with it to an extent, but the more you do it, the more you worry the weakness will become a problem.

"Maybe Kane can come back for the second leg of the Champions League tie against Borussia Dortmund [on March 5]. Having had this injury before, Harry will know when he is ready to play again."

Kane scored 19 times in 30 appearances in all competitions prior to being struck down by injury.
