Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino gave an interesting response when he was pressed by talkSPORT over whether he felt Harry Kane could become a better player.
Kane has been the best attacking player at Tottenham so far this season, with 29 goals across all competitions and he’s nearly over the 20 mark for the Premier League alone.
He’s excelled up front and has taken the pressure away from his manager, with Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor both having struggled.
“Haha, it will be difficult but he has to try, he needs to try always to get better and to improve and maintain the performance he showed,” said Pochettino.
Kane is going to face a real challenge to improve looking ahead to next season, because he’s lost that surprise element.
He’s no longer an unknown quantity and is someone that all opposition sides will be looking at, as they develop tactical systems, which are designed to keep him out of a game.
Louis van Gaal worked out a good system with Manchester United during the recent match at Old Trafford, which left Kane isolated up front with the supply line into him smothered before he could impact the game.
If Kane learns how to develop and learns how to get into different positions in similar situations next season, that’s the big way he can improve because in terms of movement, touch and aerially ability, he’s got it all.
