Spurs news: Pochettino not ruling out a return for Harry Kane
Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has refused to rule out star striker Harry Kane’s return to the squad before the end of the season.
The England international, 25, suffered a significant ankle ligament damage against Manchester City in the first leg of Champions League quarter-finals last week and no timescale has been placed on his recovery, although our club has confirmed that he has ‘commenced rehabilitation’.
This is not the first time Harry Kane has suffered an ankle ligament injury. It’s the fifth time since he has sustained since the start of the 2016/17 season and the second already this year which ruled him out for eight games between January and February.
And regardless of the recent injury being a significant one, Pochettino has not ruled out the possibility of Kane playing again this campaign.
“Still we cannot say anything,” Pochettino was quoted by the Daily Mail. “We are going to assess him day-by-day, we’ll see.
“We’re not optimistic but you know Harry Kane and with Harry Kane all is possible.
“We’re not going to say he won’t play again or not, we are going to assess him day-by-day.”
Big boost if Kane returns before the end of the season
Kane was absent as we reached the Champions League semi-finals courtesy of a thrilling away goals win over Manchester City on Wednesday. We will face Ajax in the first leg of Champions League semi-final on April 30 before travelling to Amsterdam the following week.
A place in the Champions League last four has certainly provided a big boost to Tottenham and especially Kane, who needs to speed up his recovery and try making himself available in the business end of the season.

If our star centre-forward somehow manages to return in the next couple of weeks, it’ll provide a mighty lift to Pochettino and company.
