Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino will not let Harry Kane’s desire to play against Burnley influence his decision on whether or not to pick the striker. The England captain has returned to training following an ankle injury which has kept him out of his club’s last seven games and could be back in the side for Saturday lunchtime’s Premier League clash at Turf Moor. 👀#COYS pic.twitter.com/WSf2f1RlpI — Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) February 20, 2019 It will complete a rapid recovery by Kane, who was initially expected to be out until the middle of March, and he believes he is ready to start. But Pochettino will not allow his judgement to be swayed by Kane’s opinion. “I don’t care if he wants to play or not,” he said. “I’ll decide with my coaching staff and the doctor and sports science staff. “Every player that came from an injury or illness, it’s about the structure, when he’s possible to play or not. [article-rail-section title=”LATEST FOOTBALL NEWS” posts_category=”221″ posts_number=”8″ query_type=”recent” /] “If you ask him 10 days ago he was ready to play! But the last word is always myself. I take the risk, the decision for the team.” Considering he was originally expected to be out for another few weeks, the prospect of having the England captain back for heavyweight clashes against Chelsea, Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund in the next fortnight is a major boost for Spurs. Kane has a history of shaking off injuries quicker than first thought and Pochettino has described him as an “animal”. Kane is back in training “He’s not ahead of schedule but everyone knows that Harry is an animal, he wants to be ready as soon as possible,” the Argentine added. “He made everything to try to recover and of course the injury that he suffered is tough to recover from but it’s more the possibility that when you push you push. “In some injuries, you cannot push too much, because you need to be careful. An ankle injury has sidelined Kane “When it’s a massive injury it’s completely different. We’re so happy that in the last 10 days he was fantastic, back in training again, and he can be available again. “It’s going to be a massive impact for everyone.” That leaves only Dele Alli in the treatment room as the England international continues to come back from a hamstring injury. Dele Alli joined Harry Kane on the treatment table Pochettino put a one to two week timescale on a possible return, which could see him back for the Champions League last-16 second leg tie against Borussia Dortmund on March 5. “His progression is good,” Pochettino added. “We’re happy. But it’s a massive injury, it’s different how we assess and how we follow and care for him. “But he’s in the last part of his recovery but we’ll see as soon as possible if he can be available to be involved with the team. Pochettino will not let Kane decide whether he is ready to start “It’s difficult to know when – maybe one week, 10 days, two weeks. It depends on now. “He’s in a key part, maybe the last part of his recovery and that is a key part and we can’t know if it will be one week, 10 days or two weeks, we’re going to assess him day-by-day.”

OAKNORTH Bank has launched a new cash Isa that will pay you 1.44 per cent in interest. It’s not quite as good a rate as Virgin Money’s 1.45 per cent cash Isa, but with the OakNorth product you can make unlimited withdrawals, whereas with Virgin Money you can take money out twice a year. Moneyfacts.co.uk reveals the best easy-access ISA deals on the market today The minimum investment rate for the OakNorth Easy Access Cash Isa is £1,000, and the interest is paid monthly. With Virgin Money the minimum deposit is just £1, but interest is paid yearly. Virgin also has a special version of its top-rate account designed for Manchester United fans. As well as the market-leading interest rate, you also get entered into prize draws to win football tickets and signed shirts. How do Isas work? Isas allow you to save money and earn interest tax-free. The government decides the maximum amount you can save into Isas in a calendar year and the limit for this tax year is £20,000. You can only have one “active” cash Isa product in each calendar year, so it’s important to choose the right one. If you save into a stocks and shares Isa this also comes out of the same limit. If you have a Lifetime Isa, there are separate limits and rules about how much you can save. [boxout headline=”How do you switch Isa provider?” intro=”IF you’re in the market for a new, better paying Isa, there’s one thing you shouldn’t do.”]Never withdraw money from your Isa account to put it into your new one – if you do it’ll lose its tax free benefits. Instead you need to follow the simple transfer process. Make sure that the new account you want to use accepts transfers (not all do) and then fill in the Isa transfer form with the new provider. It will arrange for your savings to be transferred over, with the process taking no more than 15 working days.[/boxout] Is it worth getting a cash Isa? Cash Isas have become less popular in recent years. In part this is because a new government rule means you can earn £1,000 in interest on ordinary savings tax-free, which is enough for most people. And Isa rates have plummeted as the Bank of England has kept the base rate low. But even if you do need to regularly access your cash, easy access savings accounts tend to have better rates than Isas. The best easy access savings account on the market pays 1.55 per cent, with ICICI Bank. Usually, if you want the best Isa rates it pays to lock your money away. The longer you agree not to touch it, the better rate you’ll get. The best fixed-rate Isa comes from the Coventry Building Society and will pay 2.3 per cent – but you can’t touch your money for three years. If you’re happy to leave your money alone, you’ll get the best rates with a savings accounts linked to current account. These regularly pay interest of as much as 5 per cent. You’ll usually have to leave the money alone for a year  and you might have to commit to making a deposit every month. There’s also a maximum amount you can save in a year. For instance, the First Direct regular saver pays 5 per cent fixed for one year and you can save between £25 and £300 each month. But if you miss a month or pay less than £25 you won’t get the interest. When should you consider getting a cash Isa? Cash Isas are still worthwhile for people who have maxed out their savings accounts, or who are likely to earn more than £1,000 in interest. And interest rates are rising quite quickly, meaning you’ll get significantly better deals that you would have a year ago. Rachel Springall, a finance expert at Moneyfacts said: “Clearly, providers are sowing the seeds for savers to discover market-leading returns, and as the Isa season flourishes, it will hopefully lead to increased competition and even better deals as we move closer to the new tax year. “In fact, 15 providers have upped rates and 12 providers have launched fresh deals since the start of 2019.” Despite this bounceback in easy-access rates, you’re unlikely to beat inflation unless you lock your money away.

STEVE CLARKE’S son has backed the Kilmarnock manager over last night’s sectarian storm at Ibrox. Clarke hit out after being called a “Fenian b*****d” by Rangers fans as his side crashed out of the Scottish Cup. Steve Clarke hit out at last night’s abuse He accused bigots of “living in the dark ages” and claimed he wakes up every morning thankful that Chelsea offered him a route out of the west of Scotland. And Clarke’s boy, John, insists he’ll be forever indebted to his dad for swapping St Mirren for Stamford Bridge in 1987. He tweeted: “I am forever grateful for my dad’s life choice. “He couldn’t have picked a better club. Also I understand it and quite frankly I think your all morons for believe it/preserving…” A section of fans called Clarke a sad “Fenian b*****d” towards the end of Rangers’ 5-0 Scottish Cup win John also argued that sectarianism is “accepted as the norm” in Scotland, insisting “it shouldn’t be”. Clarke also revealed he WAS approached by Rangers about becoming manager before Steven Gerrard’s appointment – despite claiming last year that he wasn’t. Speaking after his side’s Scottish Cup defeat, he said: “When I was approached by Rangers about taking over the job here I was assured, nah, we didn’t have that in the west of Scotland anymore and it had gone. Ha ha ha.” ‘STAMP IT OUT’ Gerrard says Rangers don’t support ‘unacceptable behaviour’ from fans after Clarke abuse But responding to a follower on Twitter, John claimed his dad snubbed the Ibrox job because he couldn’t “be a***d with the Rangers bollocks”. Clarke was furious with ref Alan Muir for sending goalie Daniel Bachmann packing at 1-0 after denying them a second minute spot kick. And Chelsea-daft John was equally incensed by the controversial decisions.

The people outraged at the foreign ref thing really are deluded. “Joke. No wonder Scottish football is a laughing stock.” We told this morning how Killie have lodged an appeal against Bachmann’s red card. A hearing date has not yet been set.
