Mauricio Pochettino is hopeful that Harry Kane will be fit to face Real Madrid in Wednesday’s Champions League clash at Wembley.
Our in-form striker was forced to miss Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford with a hamstring injury and it was clear we missed Kane’s cutting edge.
According to Eir Sport Pochettino is cautious on possibility of the 24-year-old recovering from his injury in time to take on the the galactico’s, however he is optimistic that he will.
“With the doctors and the player, we will take the best decision for everyone,” Pochettino said. “It’s not the last game or the final where you would say, ‘OK, after that it’s holidays’.
“We must analyse and take the best decision for everyone. We will assess him and then we will make the best decision.
“My feeling is good. But it’s not my feeling, it’s Harry Kane’s feeling.”
The Argentine tactician was also asked about the tactics used by Utd boss Jose Mourinho and he was asked if they had been more defensive because they were facing Spurs.
“No;” he replied. “I think no.
“My perception is that United played like they did against Benfica [a 1-0 away win] and Liverpool [a desperately dull 0-0 draw at Anfield two weeks previously].
“That’s football. Everyone can play [how] they want to play.”
