Harry Kane: I’m fit enough to be Tottenham’s only striker

The Spurs forward has stated that he is in the best condition of his career and is raring to to go today.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane is not worried about being the club’s only recognised centre forward and has stated that he is as fit now as he has ever been, as per The Daily Mail.

The North London club are lacking strength in depth in attack, with Emmanuel Adebayor not in Mauricio Pochettino’s plans and the unconvincing Roberto Soldado currently injured.

This means that Kane, who had an unbelievable breakthrough season in 2014-15, is Spurs’ only recognised available striker for the team’s Premier League opener against Manchester United at Old Trafford today.

Despite this, the England international has talked up his current physical condition and admitted that he is raring to go.

“I'm probably as fit as I ever have been this season,” The Daily Mail quote the star as saying.

“I'm in good shape. I obviously didn't have as much rest as some of the other lads but I kept myself fit while I was away and cleared my mind mentally for a good few weeks and came back in a really good place and am really looking forward to starting again.”

Kane will surely be a marked man this season after shooting to prominence from nowhere with 31 goals in all competitions for the White Hart Lane outfit last term.

Despite expecting the spotlight to be on him in 2015-16, Kane has stated that he is looking forward to the challenge.

“I'm looking forward to the challenge of seeing what I come up against and how I deal with it,” he continued.

“As a person you come up against challenges in life and it's how you deal with that that defines you.

“I am looking forward to it and am confident in my ability as I have been in my whole career that I will be capable of maintaining my form - if not improving year in year out.”

Kane played for England under-21’s over the summer but has shown no ill-effect of a lesser off-season break.

Spurs fans will hope that he can stay fit and amongst the goals to get the club off to a strong start against United today.
