Tottenham Hotspur, Mauricio Pochettino, is optimistic that Harry Kane will be fit to face Real Madrid, in their Champions League clash on Wednesday at Wembley.
Kane is hoping to shake off a minor hamstring complaint, which saw him miss their 1-0 defeat at Manchester United last Saturday.
Pochettino said on Tuesday that he was “very confident” the striker would feature at Wembley.
“We’re very confident. He’s on the list. Maybe it’s possible for him to play but I don’t want to say 100%. He trained today but it is important we make the right decision,” he said.
Pochettino also spoke about Dele Alli, who missed Spurs’ first three Champions League games through suspension. Alli travelled with the squad to Madrid last month, a move aimed at making the midfielder feel included.
“When a player is not involved, you feel a little bit down,” Pochettino said.
“Sometimes he had to stay at the training ground, alone, training. It was not easy for anyone. Maybe he was affected a little bit about that.
“Now we’re so happy with the way he’s doing. His internal motivation is higher now, to try to compete at his best level. We’re very happy with his performances, he’s increasing his level. I’m not worried about him. It’s true, he’s disappointed too that he’s not at his best. But it’s coming, like the winter is coming.”
