Harry Kane speaks about missing the Champions League final due to injury

Tottenham striker, Harry Kane has expressed hope of being fit for the Champions League final against Liverpool in Madrid on 1 June.

The England International has not played since 9 April when he suffered an ankle injury. He was however on the sideline watching as his side fought back from 3-0 down on aggregate against Ajax to draw 3-3. Tottenham go through to the final on away goals.

“Rehab is going well,” said Kane.
“I started straight line running this week and I have to start training even harder to prove myself to the gaffer.”

The first leg which was played in London saw Ajax win 1-0. They also looked to be heading to the final when goals from Matthijs de Ligt and Hakim Ziyech gave them a 3-0 overall lead.

Their dreams were dashed after a second-half hat-trick from Lucas Moura took Tottenham into their first Champions League final.

Kane added:

“I’m a fan first and foremost and I know how much it means to the club.

“It was a disappointing first half and we let them play. I went into the dressing room at half-time and we knew it [the performance] wasn’t good enough. We said we had 45 minutes to give everything.

“The lads dug deep and showed passion and that is all you can ask for. We had to wait to get the third in the last minute and we found a way. That’s what football is about and we have the final to come.”
