Tottenham Hotspur manager José Mourinho has revealed that the injury suffered by midfielder Harry Winks does not look too serious.
Winks was forced off the field during the second half of Wednesday's 2-1 win over Norwich City after a heavy challenge from Todd Cantwell left him with an ankle injury. Having already lost striker Harry Kane to a long-term injury, fans feared that Winks might find himself sidelined as well.
Fortunately, speaking after the game (via the Daily Mail), Mourinho revealed that Winks' injury does not look too bad, and any period on the sidelines is expected to be relatively brief.
"It is not a crazy one - hopefully weeks and not months," the boss admitted.
Mourinho will certainly be glad that Winks' injury is not too serious. His squad has already been stretched by injuries and a lack of recruitment - particularly in attack, where Spurs are still lacking an out-and-out striker following Kane's injury (except for Troy Parrott...whom Jose Mourinho has clearly forgotten about).
"We are in a situation when I have to think, think, think," said Mourinho. "
"We are so, so unlucky with injuries. We get back Hugo Lloris and we lose Harry Winks. It's incredible."
Mourinho's only remotely attacking substitute was midfielder Christian Eriksen, who has been heavily linked with a move to Inter, so the boss was clearly letting Spurs officials know that they need to look to the transfer market as soon as possible.
