Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino hopes to have his standout performer Harry Kane at his disposal for the Champions League final
The 25-year-old has damaged his knee ligaments in Spurs’ Champions League quarter-final clash with Manchester City and has been on the sidelines ever since.
Even though it has been the second time that he has been forced out of action this season, the England international has still gobbled 24 goals across all competitions.
The two-time Premier League top goalscorer has returned to training recently, and the hope is growing he will be fit for a massive showdown against Liverpool.
Speaking of Kane’s availability for the final game of the season, the Argentinean tactician has revealed that the Spurs’ fan favorite could help his teammates on the field after overcoming his physical problems.
“He’s training and has entered the final stage of his recovery,” he stated.
“We’re hoping he’ll be able to give us a hand – either from the start, from the bench or if not, then by giving us moral support in the dressing room – but we are optimistic that he’ll be able to help us on the pitch.”
Kane’s importance to the team is immeasurable, and everyone at the club is hopeful to have him back for the most important game in their recent history.
The North Londoners come face-to-face with the Reds at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium on June 1, which will be their first European final since the 1983-84 campaign.
