Harry Kane to Return to England for Ankle Injury Treatment

Bayern Munich has confirmed that English star striker Harry Kane has suffered an ankle injury and will undergo treatment with the English national team’s doctors in consultation with Bayern Munich’s medical department.

Kane scored his 31st goal in the Bundesliga this season in Bayern’s 5-2 victory over Darmstadt last Saturday, surpassing Uwe Seeler’s record for the most goals in a debut Bundesliga season. However, the England captain and all-time leading scorer was forced off in the 82nd minute after a blow to his left ankle.

Bayern Munich’s coach, Thomas Tuchel, later confirmed that Kane fell into the net and twisted his ankle. The club’s sporting director, Christoph Freund, insisted that Kane “will not risk” aggravating the injury and will travel to England’s training camp at St. George’s Park during friendly matches at Wembley Stadium in London against Brazil on March 23 and Belgium three days later.

The striker has a long history of ankle injuries, having missed matches on five separate occasions due to ankle problems during his tenure at Tottenham Hotspur. Two separate ankle injuries in 2019 resulted in a three-month absence from the season, including Tottenham’s Champions League semi-final victory over Ajax.

Harry Kane’s return to England for ankle injury treatment is a critical moment for both the player and his teams. As Bayern Munich confirms the coordination with the English national team for his recovery, fans and teammates alike will be eagerly awaiting updates on his condition. Kane’s resilience in the face of previous injuries gives hope for a strong comeback, reinforcing his importance to both his club and country as they navigate upcoming fixtures without their star striker.
