Ledley King suggested on Sky Sports Premier League on Saturday afternoon (3:07pm, April 27, 2019) that Harry Kane could return for Tottenham Hotspur before the end of the season.

Kane is on the sidelines at the moment with an ankle injury he suffered during Tottenham’s Champions League quarter-final first-leg tie against Manchester City.

 

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino recently suggested to Sky Sports that the 25-year-old England international could be fit for the Champions League final, should the North London outfit make it that far in Europe’s premier club competition.

The Premier League club will take on Dutch outfit Ajax in the semi-finals, with the first leg taking place this week and the second leg next week.

Former Tottenham defender King believes that Kane could be back fit before the end of the season.

King said on Sky Sports Premier League on Saturday afternoon (3:07pm, April 27, 2019) when asked if Kane could be back before the end of the season: “I think he could.

"Harry is a very fast healer, he wants to play, he just wants to play and score goals and have an impact on the team, so it wouldn’t surprise me, but at the same time he needs to make sure that he is right.”

Harry Kane needed?

Tottenham have done well in the absence of Kane, although Pochettino’s side lost to West Ham United in the London derby at the weekend.

Spurs are still not guaranteed a place in the top four of the Premier League this season, and a player of Kane’s class and quality could be helpful.

However, Tottenham and Kane should not rush into making a comeback in case there are complications and further injury.
