English captain Harry Kane has revealed that he has recovered from his hamstring injury and declares that he is ‘ready to go’ when football returns.
Kane has been working to restore full fitness during the lockdown after breaking a tendon in his left hamstring on New Year’s Day during the defeat of Tottenham in Southampton.
The Tottenham frontman is expected to be back on the field in April, but due to social distance restrictions, Kane will return to our screens at the earliest in June.

The captain of England underwent surgery and has been working on his fitness ever since
“I’m as good as I can be,” said Kane Sky Sports News. “I was in a good phase before closing. I did almost everything except train with the team.
“Since the lockdown happened, I have continued to do online sessions with the team, doing a bit of specific work where I do my own things for the hamstring and stuff, but do pretty much everything the boys do.
‘Then of course we were able to follow individual training with one employee on the field during the past week or so. It was nice to get out and touch a ball again.
“If the season continues, be it next month, or two months, three months, I should be ready to start the first game.”

Kane is one of the players that can be adversely affected by EFL’s first phase of return to training.
The PFA, League bosses and government officials outlined their plans to impose social distance restrictions on players returning to training.
The guidelines mean that players only receive ‘essential recovery / therapies’ after training for 15 minutes before going home.
Those returning from an injury are afraid of breaking down due to an increase in training volume and a decrease in treatment.
Harry Kane is one of those players who probably needs more time with physios than he is awarded.
It has been reported that the Premier League will present phase two protocols over the next seven days.
