Mauricio Pochettino has said that he is hopeful Harry Kane will be fit should Tottenham make it to the final.
“I hope yes. He is doing well but today I cannot guess,” Pochettino said when asked if Kane could be back in time for the final at Atletico Madrid’s Wanda Metropolitano. “It can be before [June 1] that he is available, or after. That will depend on his reaction [to injury].”
“Now he is in a very good period and he is going forward quickly but always there is the last moment which is the more difficult situation for the decision, to play or not. If you said to me today [will he play], my gut [feeling] is ‘maybe’ because I know Harry Kane’s determination to work and be focused to make his recovery as soon as possible. But I am not a doctor, this is only my gut.”
“We need to clarify the situation. Vincent was injured for the first part of the season,” added Pochettino on Janssen’s situation.”When we decided again he could be part of the team, he got injured again. We were helping him to recover. He was struggling with his fitness but the last [few] months he was training consistently and now he is in a position that can help the team. He is available to use and why not [do so], he is part of the team.”
