Hugo Lloris writes message on Harry Kane’s hat-trick match ball

Defence - Spurs v Chelsea

The Tottenham goalkeeper wrote ‘he’s back’ on the striker’s match ball after he netted a hat-trick against Bournemouth.

Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris clearly has faith in team-mate Harry Kane, with the image below showing that the Spurs captain wrote a special message to the hat-trick hero after his treble against Bournemouth on Sunday.

The England international had been struggling to replicate the goalscoring feats of last term for the North London side, but reminded the Premier League fraternity and the club’s fans how lethal he can be by striking three times in the 5-1 win over The Cherries at the weekend.

Pictured below with the match ball that had been signed by all his Tottenham team-mates, Lloris’ message stating that ‘he’s back’ can clearly be seen.

The homegrown hero netted 31 goals in all competitions last season in a dramatic introduction to first-team football and is now an essential member of a young Tottenham team with ambitions of finishing in the top four this season.

With Mauricio Pochettino’s men now nine Premier League games unbeaten and moving closer to the top of the table, a newfound optimism will be growing in the White Hart Lane faithful.

Having Kane back to his clinical best could well be a telling factor in determining the success of Spurs’ campaign.
