Ray Wilkins: Kane has handled rise to fame in 'wonderful fashion'

WH Lane

Former England midfielder Ray Wilkins has admitted to being impressed by the way Harry Kane has handled himself at Tottenham Hotspur.

Former England midfielder Ray Wilkins suggested on talkSPORT that Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has handled his rise in profile well this season.

Kane has been Tottenham’s in form attacking star throughout this season and Wilkins has urged Spurs not to tinker too much with his style, allowing him to develop and grow naturally as a player.

“He’s had an amazing rise to fame and he’s handled it in wonderful fashion and he seems like a really nice guy – I personally would just leave him to do what he does,” said Wilkins.

Kane has done well this season and has set an example to all other youngsters over how to approach life in the spotlight as a Premier League star.

Kane has not been in the headlines away from the pitch for anything other than football related reasons showing a good judgement over how to stay clear of things and issues, which could get him into trouble.

He’s also a very good role model for other younger players rising up through the ranks at Tottenham in terms of hard work equalling a first team chance at White Hart Lane.

The worry for Tottenham will be how they reinvent him over the course of the summer looking ahead to next season.

He’s lost that surprise factor and teams will be fully aware to everything he offers in big games.

He should be intelligent enough to stay effective throughout his career without much help and he needs to come up with new tricks if he wants to prevent coaches from trying to change him too much, when he’s been successful.
