Tottenham handed huge triple injury boost ahead of Liverpool showdown in Madrid

By on May 22, 2019


Tottenham have been handed a major triple injury boost ahead of the Champions League final with Liverpool as Harry Kane, Davinson Sanchez and Jan Vertonghen all returned to full training today.

The Premier League campaign ended on May 12th with Spurs securing fourth place with a 2-2 draw at home to Everton so the fans have been counting down the days until the huge final against Liverpool in Madrid on June 1st.

However, the lengthy delay has been a blessing in disguise for the north Londoners as it’s given some of their key players a chance to recover from injuries and get themselves in contention to play in the final.

Kane has been on the sidelines since suffering an ankle ligament injury during Tottenham’s 1-0 victory over Manchester City in the quarter-finals of the Champions League at the start of April and the striker was initially expected to miss the showpiece event against Liverpool.

Vertonghen missed the Everton game on the final weekend of the league campaign due to an ankle problem that he sustained against Ajax in the semi-finals and the Belgian international has also been in a race against time to get himself fit.

Sanchez hasn’t featured for Spurs since their defeat at Bournemouth at the start of the month after suffering a thigh injury so the centre-back was another doubt for the Champions League clash at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.

However, Tottenham have been handed a huge boost as the club confirmed this afternoon that Kane, Vertonghen and Sanchez all returned to full training with the rest of the squad at Hotspur Way on Wednesday.

The trio now have just under 10 days to get themselves fit and ready for action to put themselves in contention to start against Liverpool in the final at the start of June.

No doubt Mauricio Pochettino will give them every opportunity to prove their fitness as it would be a massive boost for Tottenham to have Kane, Vertonghen and Sanchez all available as they look to win the Champions League for the first time in the clubs history.
