Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane will be fit and ready to face Eintracht Frankfurt in the Champions League tomorrow night, according to Spurs pundit John Wenham.
The Lowdown: Kane’s injury
Worryingly though, going down in the final minutes of the game, the 29-year-old was substituted following a strong kick to the ankle as he made an attempt to block a shot shortly before the final whistle.
The Latest: Wenham’s claim
Wenham, who FI refer to as an ‘insider‘, insists Kane will be fit and ready to face Frankfurt tomorrow night after hearing the player’s post-game comments.
Speaking with Football Insider, the N17 pundit claimed:
“He did an interview after the game, one of the journalists managed to grab him.
“He claims it was just a knock so there is nothing to worry about there, hopefully that is the case.
“I don’t see any reason to doubt that claim, H isn’t one to play games when it comes to his fitness. I think it was just a precaution.
“I am sure he will be in the team and looking to bag some Champions League goals against Frankfurt on Wednesday.
“He hasn’t got any in that competition yet this season and it’s a big game for us, we need Harry to be in there winning us that game.”
The talisman then performed pre-match press conference duties alongside his manager this week, so one would have to assume he is fit and firing.
The Verdict: Huge news
However, the Lilywhites are on equal points with Frankfurt – only ahead in the table by a two-goal difference, so Antonio Conte will be relying on Kane to be 100 per cent on Wednesday as they fight for victory over their group rivals.
