Tottenham striker Harry Kane has claimed that the Premier League should try and complete the season when it is safe to play but stressed that the end of June should be the cut off point for the conclusion of the campaign.
All elite football in England has been suspended until April 30 due to the coronavirus pandemic and there has been much debate over how the remaining fixtures should be dealt with.
There have been suggestions in some quarters of extending the season into the summer, but Kane feels that adopting such an approach would have an adverse effect on the following campaign.

Kane made the comments on Instagram Live with former Tottenham player Jamie Redknapp
Speaking on Instagram Live with Jamie Redknapp, Kane said: ‘It’s a hard one. I know the Premier League will do everything they can to finish the season.
‘My personal opinion, I think we need to try and finish the season, but there needs to a point where we say enough’s enough and we need to finish it… going into July or August. There needs to be a limit. The limit for me is the end of June. Then we have to look at the options and look ahead to next season.
‘It would have such a knock-on effect for next season. Football is secondary at the moment, I know there has to be plans in place. That’s out of my hands, so from my point of view, we’ve got to wait and see what happens.’
Kane hasn’t played since New Year’s Day after suffering a hamstring injury.
Kane revealed that he should be able to return to full training when Tottenham are back
The striker returned to training earlier this month but his return to action has been put on hold.
Kane provided an update on his fitness, with the 26-year-old revealing that he should be able to integrate with the Tottenham squad when they return to training.
He said: ‘So far so good. Things are going great. I was doing my rehab up at Spurs up until last week. I should be ready to integrate with the group when we go back.
‘There’s no rush, no panic, I’m in a good space. I’ll just take it as it comes, whenever we’re back.’
One major positive for Kane is the postponement of Euro 2020 for a year, giving him plenty of time to get in peak condition for the tournament.
