England boss Gareth Southgate will have delighted Tottenham supporters on Saturday afternoon after he predicted an early comeback for injured star Harry Kane.
The 23-year-old forward suffered an ankle injury in the FA Cup win over Millwall earlier in the month, which is thought to be a recurrence of the injury he suffered earlier in the season which put him out for just under two months.
However, Southgate, who provided an update on how the Spurs star was feeling about missing England’s clashes in his press conference on Saturday also predicted an early return for Kane.
“He’s in good spirits. He’s disappointed to have missed this camp,” said Southgate in his conference, as quoted by Football.London.
“I’m sure he won’t be too long in that recovery. The kind of player he is, he will do everything to be back as soon as possible.
“We haven’t been able to pick him yet and it’s great to have a player like that we know can come into the squad.”
Tottenham fans will be ecstatic if Kane does make a quick return to the side with many questioning Son Heung-min and Vincent Janssen’s capabilities of stepping in for the forward.
Additionally, Spurs will still have ambitions of taking home the Premier League title with 10 points currently separating them from league leaders Chelsea with 10 matches left.
The next fixture against Burnley at Turf Moor may come too soon, but with clashes against Arsenal and Manchester United still to come before the season’s end, he could prove vital.
In other Tottenham news, fans have reacted to the club reportedly wanting to sell Vincent Janssen.
