NFL star Odell Beckham Jnr has warning for Tottenham's Harry Kane

A sportsman from across the pond has had his say on Tottenham Hotspur's key player this season.

In an interview with Tottenham Hotspur’s website, NFL star Odell Beckham Jnr has been speaking about the club’s biggest success story this season – Harry Kane.

The England under-21 international has already scored 26 goals in his latest campaign and it looks like he will go far beyond 30 by the time the last final whistle is blown.

Beckham Jnr enjoyed a similar breakout campaign for New York Giants, smashing records and becoming one of the most famous players in the game. But he has a word of warning for the Tottenham youngster, who will be looking to repeat his fine form next season and beyond.

“He will know what he is capable of, but when others start to notice that too, then it’s only natural that you become a target,” the NFL star said.

“When that happens, it’s important to be ready for the extra attention that you’ll receive from the opposition.”

He is absolutely right and that is something Kane will have to deal with now that he is no longer a surprise.

Few would have expected him to score anywhere near as many as he has so far, but next season he will be Tottenham’s key player, the one they look to week after week.

And as tough as it is to break through in the first place, it is even more difficult to maintain your best form over a series of challenging campaigns.

Time will tell if the Tottenham youngster can manage that, but his form will also be dictated by those around him, and by the additional players manager Mauricio Pochettino will hope to bring in this summer.
