• Kane is ready if season resumes
  • Kane says they have been unfairly criticized during COVID-19 pandemic
  • Kane lauds frontliners for carrying coronavirus fight

Harry Kane of Tottenham Hotspur has been out since January after suffering a hamstring injury but it appears he is ready if the season restarts. The 26-year-old reveals that his recovery from the injury was already at a good stage and that he has done everything required by rehab. The only thing he has yet to do is train with the team.

"I'm pretty much as good as I can be - I was at a good stage before the lockdown, doing everything except from training with the team," Kane said to Omnisport.

Though Kane has not trained with the team, he revealed that he does join the team during sessions online. Last week, he was able to do one-on-one sessions with the coaches on the pitch. Kane admits that is good to start touching a ball again although he may need time to get himself back into game shape. Prior to these, Kane was already employing different ways to help nurse his hamstring back to health.

Before he went down with the hamstring injury, Kane had scored 11 goals in 20 league appearances. But it turns out that the COVID-19 pandemic bought him time to recover from his injury. Now, he joins his Spur teammates as they try to work themselves back into shape, assuming "Project Restart" discussions churn out something positive.

"In the last week it's a case of getting that feeling back and doing a lot of individual training and finishing," Kane said in an interview with BBC.

Tottenham could benefit from a Kane return. They are currently in eighth place in the Premier League. They are seven points behind Chelsea which is in fourth place.

Kane also weighed in on the "unfair" criticism that he and other Premier League players got with efforts to raise funds for the National Health Service (NHS) and groups that need them most. According to him, they have been trying to do their best to lend a helping hand to those in need. That includes the NHS, charities, and others trying to cope up with the pandemic. Kane paid tribute to the frontliners at The Friday Football Social.

"From delivery drivers to care workers and doctors to shop workers, they have been amazing," Kane said. "Everyone is doing so much work behind the scenes that not everyone sees."

It appears the level of support that Tottenham vowed to give has come under fire. After initially announcing that non-playing staff was taking a 20 percent pay cut for two months, the decision was reversed. That drew a howl from their supporters. Only chairman Daniel Levy and the board have agreed to salary deductions.
