Kane set for Sydney clash, says Spurs boss

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has offered a guarantee that star man Harry Kane will travel to Australia for the friendly against Sydney FC on May 30.

The centre-forward is the subject of a three-way tug of war between Spurs, England's Under-21s and the senior national team.

Roy Hodgson's Three Lions play the Republic of Ireland in a friendly international on June 7, before travelling to face Slovenia in a Euro 2016 qualifier on June 15.

Gareth Southgate meanwhile may seek to select Kane in the squad for the European Under-21 Championship, which begins on June 17.

Before either of those commitments though, the 21-year-old will travel with Spurs for exhibition games in Malaysia on May 27 and Australia three days later.

Asked if the breakout star will be included in the travelling party, Pochettino said: "Sure, because he deserves to go.

"He will enjoy seeing a different country and it is one week to enjoy with our supporters in Australia and Malaysia, so he deserves to go."

Despite Kane making 52 appearances for club and country across all competitions in 2014-15, his manager has insisted the young striker isn't suffering from fatigue at the end of the campaign.

"Harry is not tired, but the problem is, if you play a lot of games in the Premier League and the Europa League over a season, you expend a lot of energy," he said.

"It is not easy but it is not about tiredness, it is about next season. We can see him in the future being the number one, not just for us but for the senior England team. 

"I don’t want to speak too much, but it is the FA’s decision. I am sure they will take the right decision for Harry and all the players with England.”

“I am happy if Harry is happy. 

“From then, it is a decision for the FA and we have to wait for that because they have to decide if they are picking him for the under-21s or if Roy Hodgson is picking him for the senior squad. It’s the FA that decides that. Nobody has asked my advice yet.”
