With the Premier League currently discussing the possibility of playing the remainder of the season behind closed doors (Sky Sports), Tottenham will be hoping that they have their injured stars back fit if and when the campaign resumes.
While Spurs had multiple injuries when the season was suspended in March, it is the fitness of star striker Harry Kane that many fans were keeping a keen eye on.
Kane has been out of action since sustaining a hamstring injury in Tottenham’s 1-0 defeat at St. Mary’s on New Year’s Day.
There were fears that the striker could miss the remainder of the season (Bleacher Report) but with the coronavirus pandemic causing havoc on the footballing calendar, the striker could be fit to play the remainder of the campaign.
talkSPORT have now issued an update on the England captain’s rehabilitation. They reveal that the striker has now completely recovered from his hamstring surgery.
Kane is said to have resumed full training, within the government lockdown guidelines. However, due to social distancing rules, he has been unable to play in warm-up matches or train competitively with his teammates.
Despite this, the report claims that Kane should be ready to make a comeback whenever football returns.

The lack of match fitness is not unique to Kane as most players will come back from the shutdown someway short of where they need to be. Clubs thus have to put their players through a mini-pre season in case the Premier League is to resume behind closed doors. If the players don’t have sufficient time to get back into the pace of things, forcing them to play nine or ten games in a matter of four to five weeks could be a recipe for disaster.
