Tottenham striker Harry Kane says he is “ready to go” subsequent to returning from an injury for Saturday’s Champions League final against Liverpool. Kane has endured ” significant lateral ligament ” harm to one side lower leg when he slipped in the quarter-final stage of Champions league as against Manchester City on 9 April.
Harry Kane said, “I feel good. There have been no problems so far. I started to feel my way back with the team at the end of last week. This week now is to get the fitness as high as possible. Then it’s down to the manager. The manager will assess it and decide whether I’m ready to go or not but, so far, I feel good and ready.”
This season Harry Kane has scored 24 goals for Tottenham in all competitions despite missing six weeks in January and February with damaged ligaments in the same ankle and also throughout the month of last season with a similar injury and endured separate absences of six and four weeks during the 2016-17 campaign.
However, when asked Pochettino whether Kane would play against Liverpool in Madrid, he said, “I can’t say he’s 100%, whether he will be available or on the bench or out, but we are so happy and positive about his progression. It’s so important that he feels well and we see what happens. I’m very positive about his situation. We have one week ahead to evaluate and see how he’s progressing”.
He added that he would ”be the first one to be happy if Kane is passed fit, but he would prioritize the team. Football is about team spirit, the collective and faith. Look how we got to the final. When Harry got injured it was in the quarter-finals and look what happened. We need to beat Liverpool and if he’s available all the better, but it’s not him and the rest of the team.”
