Cape Town - Tottenham Hotspur's Heung-Min Son has claimed that Harry Kane is the world's best player, but urged his team-mates to adapt to life without him while he is injured.

Kane picked up an ankle injury in Tottenham's 4-1 win over Bournemouth two weeks ago and is expected to return to training next month. However, in his absence, Spurs saw out the game against the Cherries before beating Swansea City 3-0 in the FA Cup quarter-finals.

"Harry Kane is, of course, a very important player for England because he's the best player in the world," Son told Sky Sports News.

"This is football, so sometimes you get injuries, but as Tottenham, we need to play without Harry. It's very sad, but the other players have to be ready. I'm not like Harry, I'm just trying to practice every day, but it's a good opportunity to make something happen."

Kane was the top scorer in the last two Premier League seasons. However, he trails Liverpool's Mohamed Salah by four goals in 2017/18.

Spurs are entering a crucial stage in their campaign as they look to secure a place in the top four. They currently sit fourth, five points clear of fifth-placed Chelsea with eight games left to play.
