Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Juande Ramos has honed-in on the threat that Harry Kane can pose to Liverpool in the upcoming Champions League final.
Kane has been out of action for Spurs since the quarter final first leg against Manchester City. However, since then he has resumed first team training ahead of the final on Saturday and travelled as part of the first team squad to Madrid.
Despite this being Kane’s second ankle injury of the season, Spurs fans can be hopeful that he will at least play some part in the game against Liverpool. Having watched Tottenham’s Champions League triumphs from the side-lines, Kane will be raring to go to do his utmost to help his side to victory.
Speaking to TalkSport last week, Kane declared his availability for the game.
He said: “I feel good,”
“I started to feel my way back with the team at the end of last week and there have been no problems so far.
“For me this week now is to get the fitness as high as possible.
“Then it’s down to the manager. Like I said, I feel good. The manager will assess it and decide whether I’m ready to go or not. But so far, I feel good and ready”.
This is definitely good news for Tottenham who not only look to Kane for his attacking threat but also his considerable leadership qualities.
The last Spurs manager to win a trophy at the club, Juande Ramos, highlighted Kane’s importance to Spurs.
He claimed that: “Both clubs know each other very well and they are very evenly matched”.
“They will match each other for desire to win it too so it will come down to details. I don’t [know] if Harry Kane is going to be fit but he is a trump card for Tottenham” (Mail Online).
Clearly Ramos feels Kane will bring the spark that these big occasions hinge on.

Kane’s progress and involvement has certainly been promising in the build-up to the game. Ramos also makes a good point regarding Kane’s potential involvement. Although he will be lacking some match fitness the return of a big game player can only be a positive for such a momentous occasion.
In the past we’ve all seen how effective Harry Kane can be in the big games. He’s made his own personal desire to play clear for all to see and that can only bode well for the squad’s confidence ahead of the game. Although he might be lacking the match sharpness of others, the Champions League final leaves no room for sentiment and if Kane is fully fit, he should start.
