Tottenham Hotspur have been without the services of star striker Harry Kane since he suffered a significant ankle injury during the second half of the Champions League quarter-final first leg against Manchester City.
Kane had to be helped to the dressing room by medical staff following a heavy challenge from City defender Fabian Delph which left Spurs fans fearing they had seen the last of the 25-year-old this season.
While Kane has not kicked a ball in anger for Spurs since the incident, Mauricio Pochettino had previously stated that he is optimistic that the player could return for the Champions League final against Liverpool on June 1st (Guardian).
He is currently stepping up his training schedule to give himself the best possible opportunity of taking to the field at the Wanda Metropolitano.
The Guardian are reporting that his efforts are being overseen by the Spurs medical team and has already began running (Guardian).
Kane is set to begin some drills involving the ball over the next few days and will step up the intensity with his first set of sprinting drills next week. Those who saw him run onto the pitch last week following the win at Ajax will certainly be confident he can be ready to play in the final.
