Tottenham’s Kane ‘looking forward’ to pre-season under Pochettino
Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane is excited to get back in the "swings of things"
Harry Kane says he is looking forward to Tottenham Hotspur’s pre-season tour as the striker adjusts to life under Mauricio Pochettino.
The Argentine took charge of his first training session over the weekend as some of the Spurs squad return to pre-season training.
All the lads are looking forward to that. We’ll be put through our paces and it will be good
Pochettino signed a five-year deal to replace Tim Sherwood in May after calling time on his brief reign at Southampton, guiding them to eighth place last term.
And England Under-21 international Kane is ready to be put through his paces by the new coaching team at White Hart Lane.
“I’ve had a good rest and I’m looking forward to getting back into the swing of things, getting fit and getting on that pre-season tour,” Kane told Tottenham’s website.
“It will be a tough pre-season but that’s what you want, you want to get fit and be ready for the season ahead. All the lads are looking forward to that. We’ll be put through our paces and it will be good.”
Kane played down concerns over his fitness after picking up an ankle injury while on England duty.
“Yes, I’m fully fit,” Kane added. “The injury was unfortunate but I had my time away, had my rest, did my rehab and I’m back fit now to training fully, so that’s perfect.”
