Harry Kane has declared he is fit and firing ahead of the Champions League final in Madrid this weekend.
The England international has been out for several weeks through injury and has had to watch his side progress to the final from the sidelines. But speaking to reporters, Kane claims he is ready to play in Madrid.
“If the final was tomorrow, I would be fit to play. I feel good. I’m back with the team and there have been no problems so far. I’ve been in full training, doing everything. I’m at a place now where I’m ready to go for any game. The manager will assess it and decide. But so far I feel good and ready.”
“Having the three-week gap after the end of the [Premier League] season definitely helped. From when it happened, I could put a plan in place to be ready for this game. We’ve had longer than we had for the other ankle injuries and it’s worked out well. I’m in a good place.”
The Spurs captain has scored 24 goals in all competitions this season and is a welcome return to the squad for Mauricio Pochettino, who has had to shuffle the pack on several occasions this season.
The final kicks off at 20:00GMT on Saturday 01 June in Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano stadium as Tottenham face fellow Premier League side Liverpool for the Champions League trophy.
Spurs are in their first ever European final whilst Liverpool look to add to their five European Cups they have won in the past, more than any other English side.
