Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has taken to social networking site Twitter in order to share his delight at being handed the club’s number 10 shirt for the upcoming campaign.
Kane, formerly number 18, broke through into the first team last season in dramatic fashion and finished the campaign making a clean sweep at the end-of-season awards night.
The 22-year-old striker has achieved a dream last 12 months, topping the club’s scoring charts with 21 Premier League goals and scoring within minutes of making his England international debut.
The pressure is on Kane to repeat his antics this season, with his importance to the team is evident after he replaced outcast Emmanuel Adebayor as the club’s new number 10, tweeting in response:
Huge honour and privilege to be given the number 10 shirt. Can't wait to get the season started tomorrow! #COYS— Harry Kane (@hkane28) August 7, 2015
Spurs kick off their 2015/16 campaign away at Manchester United, the weekend’s standout fixture and one which should be a treat for everyone involved.
However, Mauricio Pochettino’s side head into the encounter light in attacking positions with their three summer acquisitions all being defensive additions.
A player to rival Kane or compliment him in attack is a must, especially considering the added burden on the young striker’s shoulders to repeat his unbelievable form from last season.
West Bromwich Albion’s Saido Berahino has been linked, as per a number of reports including The Telegraph, and the young scorer would be a sound option if only to relieve the pressure off Kane.
