Tottenham boss Antonio Conte revealed that Harry Kane is fit to face Burnley despite suffering a knock during the 3-2 win over Manchester City. Kane produced a stunning performance and bagged a brace including the winner in the fifth minute of stoppage time. He suffered a late knock but is fit with Conte even joking about playing the England captain on one leg.
“Harry had a hit on his back but he has to play. Even if he has one leg, he has to play. He is good. Harry knows very well the importance he has on the squad for his personality, for his experience. But he is good,” Antonio Conte said about Harry Kane. “I am joking, I don’t force a player if he is injured to play. I only say to tell you the importance of the player. He is good, he is ready.”
There is a sporting director in Italy, my friend, whose name is Pantaleo Corvino. He says, ‘You can make mistake about your wife but not about the striker’.” he added. “You understand? For me, that is the best quote that I understand in football, no? You can make a mistake about your wife but not mistakes about your striker.”
“Skipp and Tanganga are recovering. They’re still not ready for the game against Burnley yet,” he added. “Sergio (Reguilon), in the training session yesterday he wasn’t present and we’ll see today. We hope they can all recover soon.”
