Tottenham Hotspur head coach Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that he expects the England international to make an appearance in Madrid next week Saturday.

Spurs take on Liverpool in the European showpiece at Atletico Madrid's Wanda Metropolitano Stadium on June 1.

Kane, 25, hasn't featured for Spurs this month and missed both legs of the club's semifinal win over Ajax Amsterdam.

Pochettino, though, is confident that Kane will make a full recovery from the ankle injury he sustained against Manchester City early last month and play some role in the Spanish capital.

"(He Kane) is training and has entered the final stage of his recovery," the Argentine told reporters in Spain on Thursday.

"We're hoping he'll be able to give us a hand, either from the start, from the bench, or if not, then by giving us moral support in the dressing room. But we're optimistic he'll be able to help us on the pitch."
