Tottenham legend says club only need Kane on the bench

Tottenham Hotspur released pictures earlier this week of Harry Kane back in training ahead of the Champions League final.

Spurs take on Liverpool on June 1 in Madrid to fight it out over the prestigious trophy and the title of ‘Champions of Europe’.

Harry Kane hasn’t been involved in perhaps the most dramatic moments for Spurs in the competition this year, but will be determined to feature in the final.

Kane went over on his ankle in the first leg of the quarter-finals against Man City, damaging his ligaments and missing the dramatic 4-3 second leg that saw Spurs qualify for their first ever CL semi.

Harry also missed the games home and away to Ajax, but perhaps it is a good job he did, after Lucas Moura bagged a hat-trick to send Spurs to the final in Kane’s absence.

Tottenham legend Teddy Sheringham believes that Spurs will be wrapping Kane in cotton wool ahead of the final in nine days, but they do not necessarily have to start him.

Sheringham said (Sky Sports): “Whether they start Harry or not, I don’t know, in a massive game like this. He’s had a lot of problems with his ankles, I think to have him on the bench and to just look around and say we can put him on for a half hour.

“He’s got another ten days still to get ready for it, that’s a long time in a process of healing. There’s a lot of work going into that as well, making sure all the ligaments around his ankle are getting stronger day by day. I’m sure they’re keeping him in cotton wool at the moment so he doesn’t go over on it again.

“I wish him well, it’s a massive game, and you never know when it’s your last final, so let’s hope he’s involved and he plays a big part again.”
