Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Teddy Sheringham has shared his opinion on whether Harry Kane should start tomorrow’s Champions League final against Liverpool.
The prolific hitman has not featured for Spurs in a competitive match since suffering a significant ankle injury during the 1-0 win against Manchester City in the first leg of the quarter final of the competition at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on April 9th.
The striker was left clutching his ankle on the side of the pitch following a heavy challenge by Fabian Delph and had to be helped to the dressing room by the Spurs medical team.
Kane has since returned to full training and has even declared himself fit for the European showpiece at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium (Sky Sports).
Sheringham, however, believes that Kane should start on the bench for the sake of potentially causing further damage that could ruin his career if he is rushed back too soon.
He told BetStars: I think you have to be very careful with Harry Kane now, for his career. I think he’s been rushed back too soon before. Whenever he’s had his ankle injuries in the past, he’s always been rushed back very quickly to be involved in the next Tottenham or England game.
“Those around Harry have to be very careful not to ruin his career by playing him too soon. If he keeps going over on his ankles, they are going to get weaker and weaker.
“I don’t know how bad this injury is now, or whether he could have played in the final game of the Premier League, but for him to rush back now for the UEFA Champions League Final if there’s a doubt about his fitness, would be a wrong move for Tottenham, and Harry Kane especially.”
