Pochettino: Positive Kane focused on recovery

Pochettino: Positive Kane focused on recovery

"With different players, it's the same", Pochettino said.

Tottenham Hotspur's English striker Harry Kane (R) receives medical attention after picking up an injury during the English Premier League football match between Bournemouth and Tottenham Hotspur at the Vitality Stadium in Bournemouth, southern England on March 11, 2018.

Meanwhile, Pochettino has refused to rule Kane - who is now suffering from an ankle injury - out of his sides upcoming London derby against Chelsea on April 1.

Spurs now lie third in the league, and narrowly missed out on a berth in the Champions League quarters after losing out to Juventus in a thrilling last-16 tie.

Kane has a history of ankle problems but Pochettino put that down to nothing but a desire to score.

"Maybe another player would say "I'm not going to take a risk".

Pochettino suggested that Alli, who felt tightness in his groin at Bournemouth on Sunday, may not start Saturday's FA Cup quarter-final at Swansea City.

Central to the north London side's ambitions will be holding on to their talisman Harry Kane - who is highly coveted by La Liga giants Real Madrid. "We will see because he's going to play for the national team [in the upcoming friendlies] and players are not machines", Pochettino said.

"We're happy because he's so positive and when you see a positive player it always helps us too, to believe he can be ready again to compete as soon as possible". But of course we have different characteristics in the team.

"Juventus was a massive game and this is a massive game as well if we want to have the option of winning a title at the end. It's not an excuse for us that Harry is now out for a few weeks".

"We have different players that can play in that position; Dele Alli, Son Heung-min, Fernando Llorente, Erik Lamela [and] Lucas Moura".

The Spurs boss added: "The reality is with his crutch and boot, we need to assess him day by day and look at the reaction".
