Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has been speaking to the Mirror ahead of his side’s Capital One Cup semi-final second leg against Sheffield United.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side lead 1-0 from the first leg but it will be a very tough contest at Bramall Lane and Kane believes his previous experience on loan could help in the encounter.
Kane has previously enjoyed loan spells at Leyton Orient, Leicester City and Millwall and he believes the lessons he learned during that time will stand him in good stead against tonight’s opponents.
“It can only help when you learn at a young age, if you play in men’s football,” he said.
“You adapt your game and play against all sorts of teams, and I definitely used that in the first leg against a tough team.”
Kane has impressed this season, scoring 18 goals in 31 appearances.
He has scored in every previous round of the Capital One Cup this season and if he can continue that record against Sheffield United it would ensure Tottenham have a great chance of making it to Wembley where they will face current Premier League leaders Chelsea.
Having been eliminated from the FA Cup at the weekend, this is Tottenham’s last chance for domestic cup success in a campaign that still promises much, provided they remain focused.
