Mauricio Pochettino gave an injury-update on Spurs’ star striker Harry Kane today.
Pochettino did not give a specific timeframe for the England international’s return to first-team action, but said that he is being assessed daily and seems to be managing his recovery well.
“I cannot tell you if he is ahead of schedule or not. We assess him day by day,” Pochettino told the press ahead of his sides clash against Newcastle.
“He is showing his social media and he looks strong and fit, running and doing exercises. He is very strong and gives 100% to be back as soon as possible. He’s determined to be back as soon as possible and be available. We will see day by day but we are happy.”
With Kane not expected to be available for selection until early March, Pochettino has called on Fernando Llorente to take his place in the centre-forward role.
Llorente, scored a crucial late winner against Watford in midweek, and will most likely be the one to again lead the line in Spurs’ attack when they face Newcastle United in Saturday’s early Premier League fixture.
