Tottenham Hotspur will be thrilled with the fact that they were able to secure a Champions League spot for next season via a top-four Premier League finish.
However, the club will now be hoping that they didn’t actually need to finish in the Prem qualification spots, as they look to lift the Champions League trophy itself.
After pulling off a sensational comeback against Ajax, courtesy of a second-half Lucas Moura hat-trick, Spurs will now embark on their first ever CL final.
Tottenham face fellow Prem side Liverpool in Madrid on June 1, with both sides looking to lift the trophy and qualify for next season’s tournament in pot one.
Spurs have now received a huge boost in their quest for the trophy, as the Standard report that Harry Kane is ‘certain’ he will be back in the squad for the big day.
This comes after Kane sustained an ankle ligament injury against Man City in the quarter-final first leg.
It remains to be seen whether Pochettino starts the striker, but it would be a huge bonus for Spurs to at least have him available as an option, not to mention it being a boost for England’s Nations League campaign.
Spurs Web Opinion:
As I have said before, I would be hesitant to throw Kane straight into the starting line up. If the strike has looked incredibly sharp and fit in training, then fine, start him. However, Pochettino must avoid picking him on name alone if other players are fitter and in better form, for example, Lucas Moura. Having Kane as an impact sub on the bench would still be a huge boost to the side.
