Tottenham Hotspur have already made history this season in the Champions League by making their first ever semi-final, followed by their first ever final.
Before this season, Spurs had only even made the quarter-final on one previous occasion, and that was back in 2011.
Spurs looked down and out on numerous occasions through the campaign, whether it was after taking just one point from three games in the group stage, going behind away to Man City, or facing a 3-0 aggregate deficit against Ajax with 45 minutes to play.
The Lilywhites have fought until the dying minutes in every single Champions League match this season, clawing their way to a historic final.
Pochettino’s men will now face Liverpool in Madrid on June 1 to decide which Premier League club brings the prestigious trophy back to England.
Karren Brady, the vice-chairperson of West Ham United, has hinted that Kane’s return could tip the scale in Spurs’ favour, but on the other hand, Liverpool are a class team.
She said (Sun): “Spurs have tightrope-walked through the two previous rounds to reach Madrid while Liverpool have been through another circus act, Harry Houdini’s, to escape several knotty situations.
“The return of another Harry – this time Kane – could do the trick but Liverpool are a top-of-the-bill team.
“Regardless, either Mauricio Pochettino or Klopp will earn their first major trophy in this, a year never to forget.”
Spurs Web Opinion:
These comments seem rather unbiased from the usually Spurs-critical Brady, however, she could be right. Whether Spurs have Kane back fit and firing could make a huge difference, while Tottenham must also somehow nullify the threat of one of the best attacking sides in the world. Whatever happens, it should go down as a great game to watch.
