Harry Kane has admitted he may “take a while” to get back up to speed as Tottenham return to team training ahead of the Premier League’s return.
The English top-flight is set to resume on June 17th, with Spurs expected to play their first match on the weekend commencing June 20th. Jose Mourinho’s men will look to make up ground on Chelsea and Manchester United in the battle for the final Champions League qualification spot.
Having a fully fit Kane available will help Tottenham to no end. But having not played since New Year’s Day because of a hamstring injury, the England captain has acknowledged he may not be 100% ready straight away.
“From an injury point of view, I’m back to normal, fully fit,” Kane told the club’s official website. “Obviously it will take a while to get back into the team training because I haven’t done that for six months or so, but I’m feeling good, I feel sharp.”
Hopefully with a couple of weeks worth of team training under his belt, Kane will be able to build enough fitness to be on par with his teammates in time for Spurs’ first match. It’s worth keeping in mind that most players will be a bit rusty because of the recent break.
