Harry Kane will be fit to face Liverpool in the Champions League final on June 1st, according to former Tottenham Hotspur defender Graham Roberts.
On Wednesday, Spurs confirmed Kane has returned to training along with Jan Vertonghen and Davinson Sanchez. Kane and Sanchez sat together in the stands during the incredible comeback against Ajax in the semi-finals.
Vertonghen played in the Amsterdam Arena but left the stadium on crutches after injuring his ankle. However, it appears all three will be fit to play a part against Liverpool
Fears remain over whether Kane will be 100% fit going into the final, but a Tottenham player of old has just handed the fans a boost.
Roberts, an ambassador for Spurs who made over 200 for the club, said he spoke to Kane at his gala dinner for charity earlier this week. And the 59-year-old revealed what Kane told him about his fitness.
Roberts told Sky Sports News: “I had my gala dinner the other night for my charity and Harry Kane came, and the first question that was asked was ‘Are you fit?’. And he said yes.
“So he’s raring to go. Yesterday [Wednesday] he started joining in with boys [in training].
“He’s got that aura about him and everybody looks up to him. He’s such a character that I think, to be honest, the players will be disappointed if he doesn’t play.
“When he ran onto the pitch after [the game against Ajax] you thought he’s not far away now. I think he was disappointed he wasn’t on the bench for the semi-final.
“But they’ve given him a little longer and now he’s fit. He’s a big character and leads the line well for us and watch out Liverpool.”
All of the signs suggest Kane will be fit to play from the start on June 1st, which will greatly improve Tottenham’s chances of bringing the trophy home.
