Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Gary Lineker has called for Harry Kane to start Saturday’s Champions League final against Liverpool if he is fully fit.
Kane suffered a significant ankle injury during the quarter final first leg victory against Manchester City in a heavy challenge with Fabian Delph which left the forward on the floor next to the pitch clutching his left leg.
He had to be helped to the dressing room by the Spurs medical staff with some fans fearing that they would not see the 25-year-old in action again this season. However, Tottenham’s progression to the final in Madrid has given Kane the potential opportunity to play in the biggest match in European club football.
Lineker who helped Spurs to lift the FA Cup in 1991 took to Twitter to voice his support of Kane lining up in Mauricio Pochettino’s starting eleven at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.
If @HKane IS fit, he starts. Simple.

While some may view Kane starting the match as a risk, this match is the biggest in the club’s history and we have to do everything in our power to win it. While some have stated that he should come off the bench for the final 30 minutes, that would rely on us still being in the tie at this stage.
We agree with Lineker, Kane should start and help guide Spurs to glory.
