Former Liverpool and West Ham United goalkeeper David James said on the SportsHUB: Transfer Deadline Live show on BT Sport Europe on Tuesday evening that Tottenham Hotspur fans should not be worried about Harry Kane’s struggles in front of goal at the moment.
The England international striker enjoyed a breakthrough season in 2014-15, scoring 21 goals and creating 27 chances in 34 Premier League matches.
Former Liverpool and West Ham goalkeeper James has had his say on the 22-year-old’s failure to score for Tottenham so far this campaign, explaining why Spurs fans should not be too concerned.
“It wasn’t as if Harry Kane was scoring all the way through the season, from beginning to end,” the 45-year-old said on the SportsHUB: Transfer Deadline Live show on BT Sport Europe on Tuesday evening.
“That is the point (that he started scoring in November). If he mirrors last season, then he is all right at the moment.”
Kane did find the target at the weekend, scoring in England’s 6-0 victory over San Marino away from home in a Euro 2016 Group E qualifier on Saturday evening.
While James’ comments may seem amusing to some, he does have a point. The Englishman took a while to start scoring goals last season, and perhaps it is a similar situation this time around.
Expectations are high on the Tottenham striker this campaign, but one should not forget that he is only 22 years of age.
However, as his goal against San Marino showed, Kane is brimming with confidence and he will start scoring for Tottenham sooner rather than later.
