The striker was given an extended break this summer after playing in the Under-21 European Championship but is confident of facing Manchester United in August

Tottenham striker Harry Kane is confident of being ready for the new Premier League season despite only returning to training earlier in July.

The youngster enjoyed a breakthrough campaign in 2014-15, scoring 21 league goals as Mauricio Pochettino’s side finished fifth, earning himself an England cap and a debut goal in the process.

Kane travelled to the Under-21 European Championship with England early in the summer and was consequently given time off by Spurs.

But, despite his late return to the camp, he has no fear about regaining match fitness in time for their first game against Manchester United.

“I don’t think I’ll miss the start of the season; there’s more than enough time to be ready,” he told the Football Association’s official website.

“Even though I’m away, it’s not always physically a problem as sometimes you need to get away mentally as well.

“I still keep myself fit and in shape – it isn’t like I just let myself go – so I’ll be ready for the start of the season for sure.

“Hopefully I can go on to do better and bigger things.”
