Harry Kane has revealed that he is “hopeful” of being fit for Tottenham Hotspur’s Champions League final against Liverpool in Madrid on 1 June.
The striker has been out of action since suffering a significant ankle injury during the 1-0 win against Manchester City in the first leg of the quarter final last month.
He travelled with the rest of the Spurs squad to Amsterdam for the semi final second leg clash with Ajax and spoke to BT Sport on the pitch just moments after the club’s dramatic victory courtesy of a Lucas Moura second half hat-trick.
Kane said that he is working hard on his fitness and is hoping to be back in time for the match whilst also admitting that he has to prove himself worthy of a starting place following the heroics in Holland.
Here’s what he had to say to BT Sport.
"I've got to start training even harder and prove myself!"
"Hopefully I'll be back, and hopefully I'll have a starting place."
