Mauricio Pochettino Opens up on Harry Kane’s Availability against Real Madrid

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino claims that he is confident that Harry Kane will be available for the game against Real Madrid in the Champions League. This is an extremely important match for the club, as they are fighting to rediscover the form after back-to-back defeats in all competitions. Kane has been unavailable for action since the 4-1 victory over Liverpool when he appeared to suffer a hamstring problem. Spurs have sorely missed the striker, as they have been beaten in the last two matches without the goals from the forward.

The biggest disappointment for the club may be the 1-0 loss against Manchester United in the recent league match, as it meant that Spurs have fallen three points behind the Red Devils and a whopping eight points behind Manchester City after 10 matches in the campaign. Pochettino claims that he is confident that the striker will be available for the game against Real Madrid, but he does not want to take any risks with the player. Only after careful analysis will Spurs make a best decision, according to Pochettino. He feels that Kane may be fit enough to start the game, but the final decision is yet to be taken and will be done only after analysis with the player.

Even though Spurs have dropped several points and have been knocked out of the League Cup in recent weeks, Pochettino is not worried about the poor form of the club. He says that as long as the club are competitive, he is not worried about the results. Pochettino claims that the attention given by Spurs on several fronts like building the team, stadium, and training facilities mean that it is not difficult to arrive at a winning position straightaway. He has also pointed out to the presence of several youngsters in the team, as Pochettino tries to deal with the increased expectations surrounding Spurs.
