Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane admits joy in proving his critics wrong

The striker finished the season with 25 Premier League goals, but had struggled early on.

Harry Kane has admitted to the official Tottenham Hotspur website today that he is happy to have proved the critics from earlier in the season wring, as he collected his Premier League Golden Boot award.

Kane scored 25 goals in the league this season, seeing him finish ahead of Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero and Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy in the race for the award.

But of course he did not start the season well and many were starting to wonder if he was perhaps a one season wonder.

Kane told the official Tottenham Hotspur website today:

“Even early on this season when I hadn’t scored for a few games I was getting some criticism, so to then go on and win the Golden Boot shows I’ve had a great season.

“It’s very pleasing for me to be able to answer those critics, but anyway I just concentrate on my own game, I know what I’m capable of and I’ve kept my confidence throughout."

Kane had played for the England under-21s in the summer and that had appeared to have taken a toll on the striker ahead of the Premier League season with Tottenham Hotspur.

He did not score his first Premier League goal until the end of September but a hat-trick v Bournemouth on the 25th October sparked his season into life and he went on to score 31 goals in all competitions for Tottenham and England.

He will now be hoping to carry that form into the summer with England at the European Championships.
