Harry Kane has a habit of rushing back early from his injury setbacks and June 1st is now the key date for in terms of his impending return.
As the seconds ticked by against Ajax, Tottenham’s season looked as if it would end against Everton on Sunday, meaning Kane would have kicked his last ball in club football for 2018/19 already.
But Lucas Moura’s last gasp strike sent Spurs though to the final of the Champions League against Liverpool on the first day of next month, and the big question for Kane is whether he will be fit.
According to the Daily Mail, he said: “Hopefully, rehab is going well. I started straight line running this week. That’s why I ran over there because it was straight and I didn’t cut any corners. So far so good and if it keep going like this then it’s positive and I’d hope to be fit but there’s still a few weeks to go.”
Kane sprinted onto the pitch to celebrate the dramatic win and given the way he recovers usually, it would be a surprise if he wasn’t involved against the Reds next month.
It’s just a case of whether he can be sharp and match fit enough because his early returns can mess with the rhythm of Spurs’ attacking play when he isn’t on top form.
But he’s the world’s best goalscorer and would worry Liverpool far more than Fernando Llorente in Madrid.
