Kane's perfect reply when quizzed over player of the season chances

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has played down his chances of winning the player of the season award.

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane gave a perfect response to talkSPORT when he was quizzed over his chances of winning the Premier League’s player of the season.

Kane has been one of the best players in the division so far, with 24 goals across all competitions for Tottenham making him arguably the club’s most important player at the moment.

“To be honest I haven’t really thought about it – I’m trying to just do my best for the team and seeing where it takes us,” said Kane.

“Come the end of the season if I’m in the running, it’s something I’ll be very proud of but at the moment it’s each game as it comes because we’ve got plenty of games coming up.”

It’s a perfect response because he’s showing no signs of being distracted by what he can achieve on a personal level.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino will want him to continue to motivate himself over the rest of the season and there’s still plenty to achieve and be a part of.

Tottenham have an important Europa League game later, the League Cup final to look forward to and the possibility of Champions League qualification over the rest of the season.

If Kane is named the player of the season at the end of the campaign, there’s a good chance that Spurs will have finished in the top four or at the very least have won a piece of silverware.

He appears to be a very level-headed and sensible professional determined to make the most of his good form at the benefit of the team and not on a personal level.

Long may that continue.
