Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane still seeking further improvement

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane says he still doesn't feel like a 'top player'.

Harry Kane has told FourFourTwo Magazine that he still feels he has work to do in order to be considered a ‘top player’.

The 21-year-old may have netted 30 times in a brilliant breakthrough season, but he is not about to rest on his laurels.

The Tottenham Hotspur striker is determined to improve further and says that he will be working on developing his physical attributes in training.

"I always want to try to be better," he said. "The main thing I want to work on now is the physical element – I want to get as fit and as fast and powerful as I can.

"In pre-season, we worked a lot on my fitness, speed and strength – a lot of people have come up to me and said how different I look to last season!

"I stay behind after training to work on my finishing and practice for certain match situations. I still don't think of myself as a top player. There's still room for me to improve. I still don't think of myself as a top player."

If there is one area Kane still needs to develop it is his pace. The England international is never likely to become a blisteringly quick forward, due to his size, but if he can improve his acceleration it will be another weapon for him to use.

Kane has hardly been hampered by not being as physically imposing as he wants to be, though, as his form this season has been nothing short of incredible.

The striker has gone from young hopeful to high-profile star in under 12 months and seems to have the potential that will allow him to lead the Tottenham line for many years to come.

The Lilywhites have lacked a potent forward for some time, but Kane appears to be the answer to their problem and the academy graduate will be hoping to be similarly successful next year, after having a full pre-season to work on any areas he feels are still in need of improvement.
