Harry Kane has said he is hopeful of being fit for the Champions League final after Tottenham Hotspur booked an unlikely meeting with Liverpool in Madrid.
Spurs came from two goals down to beat Ajax 3-2 in Amsterdam thanks to Lucas Moura’s sublime hat-trick.
Kane injured his ankle in the first leg of the quarter-finals against Manchester City, but Tottenham have somehow managed to reach the final without their talisman.
Lucas Moura more than stepped up on Wednesday night, while Fernando Llorente played an important role as a substitute.
But Mauricio Pochettino will hope to have Kane back for the final on June 1st to give his side a better chance of winning the competition.
The striker, who ran on the pitch at full-time, was interviewed on the pitch after the game, and he was of course asked if he will be fit to play against Liverpool.
“Hopefully,” Kane said (via the Mirror). “Rehab is going well. I start straight-line running this week, that explains that run.
“We will see. So far so good. If it carries on as it is, hopefully.”
It’s highly unlikely Kane will play any part against Everton in the Premier League on Sunday.
Thankfully for Spurs, it looks as if they have already sealed a place in the top four unless a pair of unlikely results come to fruition.
