Harry Kane ready for action if Premier League returns

Harry Kane has insisted that he is ready for action when the Premier League returns after recovering fully from a long-term hamstring injury.

The Three Lions striker had not played since going under the knife due to a ruptured hamstring tendon which he sustained on New Year’s Day. However, the suspension of the game due to the COVID-19 pandemic has afforded him ample to make a full recovery.

He’ll be returning to action with the likes of Steven Bergwijn, Moussa Sissoko, and Heung-min Son. The Premier League plans to return in June and although players have been engaging in individual training sessions, the green light is yet to be given for the commencement of group training.

Regardless, Kane has maintained that he’ll be ready if football returns as the future of the game this season remains uncertain.

“I’m pretty much as good as I can be,” Kane told Sky Sports News.

“I was at a good stage before the lockdown. I was pretty much doing everything except from training with the team.

“Since the lockdown’s happened, I’ve continued doing sessions online with the team, a bit of specific work where I do my own stuff for the hamstring and things like that, but pretty much doing everything else the boys are doing.

“Then obviously the last week or so we’ve been able to go in and do one-on-one training with one member of staff on the pitch. It’s been nice to get out and start touching a ball again.

“Whenever the season does continue, whether it’s next month, or two months, three months, I should be ready to go from the first game.”
