Harry Kane: Tottenham and England captain steps up comeback in training
Last Updated: 09/03/20 6:28pm
Tottenham captain Harry Kane has been pictured midway through a personal rehabilitation session as he steps up his comeback from a hamstring injury.
The England forward has not played since sustaining a rupture on New Year's Day against Southampton but appears to be on course to return ahead of schedule.
Kane took part in passing and other drills at the club's training ground on Monday morning, while his team-mates continued their preparations for Tuesday's crucial Champions League last-16, second-leg game against RB Leipzig.
The 26-year-old looked sprightly during the session and his appearance will have provided encouragement to both Spurs head coach Jose Mourinho and England boss Gareth Southgate he will feature before the season's end.
There had been fears Kane would be sidelined for the remainder of the campaign, but he tweeted: "Love being back on the grass with a ball at my feet."
Steven Bergwijn will miss the game in Germany as Spurs look to overturn a 1-0 first-leg deficit after he sustained an ankle injury in Saturday's 1-1 draw at Burnley.
"Following assessment and examination by our medical team, we can confirm that Steven Bergwijn suffered a significant sprain to his left ankle during our match against Burnley," a Tottenham statement read.
"The Dutchman will now undergo an extended period of rehabilitation where his progress will continue to be assessed."
Ben Davies is also out after the left-back, who has only recently returned from an ankle injury, missed training on Monday with a hamstring issue.
Leipzig have confirmed the match will go ahead as normal, despite PSG's match with Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday joining Valencia's tie against Atalanta in being played behind closed doors.
