Benitez cautions Pochettino against starting Harry Kane against Liverpool

Newcastle United manager Rafael Benitez believes Mauricio Pochettino would be taking a risk if he starts Harry Kane against Liverpool in Saturday's Champions League final. 

The England striker has been sidelined with an ankle injury since the quarter-final win over Manchester City last month but has declared himself fit for the final in Madrid. 

When asked about starting Kane in Madrid, Benitez told Sky Sports: "That is the main question, whether you play him coming back from injury or not.

"They were doing so well and the players up front are so dynamic, to change that and put a player who is maybe not fully fit is a risk. We have to wait and see how confident Pochettino is with the fitness of Harry Kane."

Kane has scored five goals for Tottenham in their run to the Champions League final this season.
