Harry Kane discusses his breakthrough season with Tottenham

The forward has also suggested that dealing with a tough second season is part and parcel of the game.

Speaking to BT Sport’s Fletch and Sav, broadcast from 10am on Saturday 5th September, Harry Kane was discussing his impressive first season with Tottenham and the struggles he faces this year.

The young forward enjoyed an outstanding first season in the Premier League as the goals flowed, finishing up as the second highest scorer in the division despite only featuring regularly from November onwards.

It was a meteoric rise for him after he had only featured in the Europa League for the side, and he says he just rode the wave as things fell for him time and time again.

“I worked so hard to get into that starting eleven,” he told Fletch and Sav.

“I got a couple of goals and then the confidence went sky high. Things started falling for me and before I knew it I was on 10 then 15 goals, and it was all happening so quick I just rid the wave.”

Working on continuing to improve his game

With the season still in it’s infancy, it would be amiss to suggest Kane is struggling, although his goal scoring touch from last year has so far deserted him.

He also failed to get a goal while on international duty with the England U21s this summer, although a well take finish against San Marino is sure to have done wonders for his confidence.

Many though, are expecting things to be difficult for him this season with defenders now having become accustomed to his style of play. He is aware of that however, and says he will simply work on continuing to improve his game.

“It’s going to be tough; people are going to be more aware and trying to stop you,” he added.

“To be a top player you have to deal with that. I’ve worked hard and I have to keep working hard on improving. I’m still young and still learning the game, if I score 30 odd goals again that would be amazing.”
