UEFA Champions League: Pochettino reveals “painful” decision

Tottenham Hotspur manager, Mauricio Pochettino, has revealed he face a painful decision to make his starting team for the Champions League final, as he remained guarded about Harry Kane’s fitness.

The England captain damaged his ankle against Manchester City, in the Champions League quarter-final, since April 9 and has been out of active football.

Harry Kane said he is ready to return to the side, as Tottenham prepare to take on Liverpool in the biggest match in the club’s history.

The manager is wondering whether to keep faith with the players who completed the remarkable semi-final comeback against Ajax, with Lucas Moura scoring a hat-trick or gamble with Kane.

It’s one of the toughest moment i have come across as a manager, it is very painful

This is not going to be easy to make a decision tomorrow, because it is part of my job to decide how to pick for the starting XI

It is so painful when this type of game arrives and you can only use from the beginning eleven players, we are going to take the best decision to try and win.

This is one of the painful situation in football,” Pochettino told a press conference on Friday.
