Harry Kane designs ‘perfect Spurs player’ from former teammates
Harry Kane designs ‘perfect Spurs player’ from former team-mates by choosing one attribute each
Harry Kane was leading a QnA on Twitter yesterday after completing 10 years since his Premier League debut, which he made against Newcastle United on August 18, 2012.
A fan asked him to design the perfect Spurs players using former Tottenham teammates, and he could only choose one attribute per player. by Kane answer had a few obvious inclusions and one that would have surprised Spurs fans.
First, he picked Jermain Defoe and his finishing ability. The dynamite striker enjoyed a heroic time at Spurs, scoring 143 goals in 362 games in all competitions.
He is now back at the club as a coach. Next, the electric Kyle Walker and its rhythm. The Englishman is now at Manchester City but made a name for himself playing for Spurs.
Kane went on to add the name of cult hero Moussa Dembele to the shortlist. The silky Belgian dribbler was one of the most aesthetically pleasing footballers to watch, and it’s no surprise the 29-year-old picked him for his dribbling abilities.
Surprisingly, he named Tom Huddlestone as the best passer he played with at the club. The 35-year-old is now with Manchester United’s reserve team in a coaching role and he didn’t play long with Kane, having left the club in the summer of 2013.
Kane played with Christian Eriksen and Gareth Bale, but the duo was not on his list. The Spurs superstar, now 29, is in the peak final years of his career.
Looking back on the decade, he won’t have many regrets when it comes to individual performances. But for a player who has been so consistent, it’s a shame he has yet to win a trophy at Spurs.
Let’s hope Antonio Conte is a man who can change that. The Italian manager has led the club to a decent start to the season, with a win over Southampton followed by a 2-2 draw with Chelsea last weekend via a 96th-minute equalizer from Kane himself.
