Harry Kane says he is on course to be fit for Tottenham’s Champions League final clash with Liverpool after the England captain joined his team’s celebrations following their astonishing victory over Ajax.
Kane is recovering from an ankle ligament injury, but he was watching from the stands in the Johan Cruyff Arena as Tottenham recovered from 2-0 down to win 3-2 in the semifinal second leg on Wednesday.
The incredible comeback sent Tottenham through to their first Champions League final and Kane is confident he will be ready to feature when Mauricio Pochettino’s men face Liverpool in Madrid on June 1.
“We’ll see. So far so good, so if it carries on as it should I would hope to be. There’s still a few weeks to go,” Kane told BT Sport.
“Rehab is going well. I start straight line running this week which is why I was OK to run on at the end.
“We beat Man City and Ajax so I have to start training even harder to prove myself to the gaffer.”
Kane has been sidelined since sustaining his latest ankle injury in a challenge on Manchester City’s Fabian Delph in the quarterfinal first leg on April 9
