Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane revealed in an interview with FourFourTwo how opposition players have started to adjust to him.
Kane has been the club’s top scorer this season and has faced a variety of challenges, as he looks to maintain the high standards he’s now set for himself.
One of the key challenges he will experience next season is the ability to reinvent himself in all games because everyone is now fully aware of the threat he poses in every match.
“I can’t ever stop trying to improve – Defenders are getting a bit tighter on me now and maybe there’s a defensive midfielder screening in front of me too,” he said.
Kane works extremely hard in Tottenham’s attack and is one of the best in the business when it comes to playing slightly wider, as well as dropping off.
He tries to move defenders around and out of position, which helps him to expose them while creating space for other players.
The holding midfielder in front of him is something he can’t do much about, because he’s relying on teammates running from midfield to try and keep that player occupied.
Manchester United and Chelsea have shown in games this season that if Kane can be isolated, the Tottenham attack loses a lot of its punch which is key to the way Tottenham go about trying to win matches.
Hopefully he can counter the tactics and reproduce the good form he’s shown this year.
