Tottenham warned not to rush Harry Kane back from injury by former midfielder Danny Murphy

Danny Murphy has warned Tottenham not to put Harry Kane ‘at risk’ by rushing him back to fitness.

The striker has missed Spurs’ last five games after suffering ankle ligament damage during the 1-0 defeat to Manchester United on January 13.

Since losing their talisman striker to injury, Spurs have recorded three Premier League wins but suffered exits in both the FA Cup and EFL Cup

He was originally ruled out until March but, after a week of rehab and light training in the Bahamas, it has been suggested Kane could be back in action sooner than first thought.

Getting stronger every day. Lots more work to do

talkSPORT understands the England captain is planning to make his comeback in Tottenham’s Champions League last-16 clash against Borussia Dortmund on February 13.

However, Murphy believes the club should be patient with their top scorer.

“The observation I’ve always made with Harry when he comes back from injuries is it takes him a white to get his rhythm back,” the former midfielder told talkSPORT host Jim White.

“The big shame for him and Spurs was just before he got injured he looked super sharp. He looked really fit and strong and hungry – the best I’d see him in a while.
