Tottenham have been advised by former Tottenham player Gary Lineker to start Harry Kane in the Champions League final. Tottenham have been without Harry Kane since early April due to ankle ligament injury but the England international is reported to be fit.
A report in the Daily Mail says Harry Kane will be on the flight to Madrid on Wednesday. He will join the rest of the squad after returning to fitness. However, one can’t reasonably expect him to have match fitness as he’s been nursing an injury while he should have been training for peak fitness.
Regardless, a player of Kane’s ability and stature deserves to play in the Champions League final even if he is not 100% sharp. Gary Lineker has advised Mauricio Pochettino to start his frontman in case he has returned to fitness.
If @HKane IS fit, he starts. Simple.

Harry Kane has scored 5 goals in the 8 Champions League games he has played this season. He was injured in the first leg of the Quarter-Final against Man City and missed the other leg. He also couldn’t appear against Ajax as Tottenham came from three goals down to win the tie and make it to the final.
The Champions League final is to be held in the Wanda Metropolitano on June 1. Liverpool will be without Naby Keita and Tottenham’s main injury concern was Harry Kane. Some other players are also on the treatment table like Harry Winks, Davinson Sanchez, Danny Rose. All are expected to be fit by the time the match kicks-off.
