While admitting that he still has to learn about the finer details, Jose Mourinho has hinted that Tottenham striker Harry Kane’s injury might leave him sidelined until the end of the season – perhaps even longer.

With EURO 2020 fast approaching, Harry Kane’s injury has left the England fans wondering who will take the talisman’s place in the line-up.

As Four Four Two reports, Tammy Abraham says he feels disappointed to hear about the Spurs striker.

Abraham, while speaking about taking up the striking role in the national team, insisted that he is no hurry to take Kane’s place. He also reminded that England had many options in the form of Jamie Vardy, Marcus Rashford, Danny Ings and the like.

“Of course I look up to Harry Kane and I’m gutted he’s injured but hopefully he’ll be back for the Euros,” he said.

“There is an opportunity and that’s the world of football but there’s a load of competition as well. I look across the board and see Marcus Rashford, Danny Ings, a lot of strikers scoring goals.

“I’m always ambitious and it’s always at the back of my mind. Growing up, I always wanted to play for England and now I have the opportunity so I’ll try to grab it with two hands.

“There’s probably more pressure being Chelsea’s number nine but I’m enjoying myself and I just have to keep doing that.”
