Former Tottenham Hotspur Tim Sherwood has labelled ’s recent injury worry as a potential ‘season ender’ if the club continue to persist with Jose Mourinho’s counter-attacking style of football.

Kane has made 29 appearances for Spurs this season, and has chipped in with 19 goals and 14 assists in all competitions, but was withdrawn at half-time with an ankle problem in their recent match against Liverpool.

Spurs are sat sixth in the Premier League table heading into their match against Brighton and Hove Albion on Sunday evening, where they’ll be looking to return to winning ways after that defeat to Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Speaking on Sky Sports, Tim Sherwood voiced his concerns for his former team though after Kane’s injury, and felt as though it would be a ‘season ender’ for Spurs if they continue to play on the counter-attack without him.

“It is a season ender if they continue to play with that low block and counter attacking football.”

Tottenham are averaging 51.5% of the possession so far in the Premier League, and only had 37% of the possession in their match against United earlier this year, despite winning the match 3-0.

Plenty of Spurs supporters took to social media to react to Sherwood’s recent comments, with a number of fans being divided in their opinions on the matter.

Take a look at the best of the reaction from Twitter below…

“Agree with Tim – Jose hasn’t shown the tactical flexibility to cope without Kane. We don’t have the defence to play sit back and contain teams.”

“Tim’s absolutely clueless. Season over because one player might be out for a few weeks. I forgot we only have 1player at Spurs. Jose has to work it out without Kane, he will as we have no choice. Our record without Kane is pretty decent Man shrugging have some faith.”
