Kane winning fitness battle


Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has issued an upbeat report on Harry Kane ahead of the Champions League final against Liverpool.

Kane has not played since damaging ankle ligaments during Tottenham's Champions League quarter-final first leg win over Manchester City.

At the time it was thought he would not play again this season, but the England striker has returned to training and could feature when Pochettino's men face Liverpool's in Saturday's final in Madrid.

"I think Harry Kane is in the last week, Friday and Saturday, start to be involved with the group. Very positive the situation with him," Pochettino told reporters. "We have one week ahead to see how he is progressing.

"It’s so important that he feels well and he’s very positive. We’ll see what happens. I cannot say if he’ll be 100% fit or starting, or on the bench or out."

As he prepares to lead Tottenham into a first Champions League final, Pochettino admits he will find it difficult to narrow down his team selection.

"Some people who like to talk are trying to live the experience and empathise with me about how difficult it will be to pick 11 players, but always it’s painful," Pochettino said.  

"It will be the Champions League final but we will make sure we take the best decision. We’ve been spending 12 hours a day with our players this week and who better to know who to pick to play?"
