The Tottenham Hotspur striker failed to play well for England at Euro 2016 in France.
Former Arsenal striker John Hartson explained on The Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast on talkSPORT on Friday morning (broadcast from 6am, July 15) what Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane needs to do to get back to form.
Kane is one of the best young strikers in Europe, but the 22-year-old failed to do much of note for England at the 2016 European Championship in France this summer.
The youngster failed to score a single goal in four matches for England, creating six chances in the process.
Former Arsenal striker Harton has advice for Kane, which he believes will help the Tottenham star in the long run.
“I think Harry Kane works too hard,” said Hartson on The Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast on talkSPORT on Friday morning (broadcast from 6am, July 15). “I think he does too much.
“He just needs to play within the width of the 18-yard box, and I just think, be more of a focal point, be more of a target. He is like a midfield player-cum-striker with all the running around that he does.”
“The advice I would give him, if he ever took advice from me, is that you don’t need to do all that running around,” added the former Celtic striker.
Kane scored 25 goals and created 44 chances in 38 Premier League appearances for Tottenham last season.
During the 2014-15 campaign, the England international striker scored 21 goals and created 27 chances in league matches for Spurs.
The 22-year-old is a well-rounded football and works hard, and that is something to cheer about.
While Hartson is right about Kane doing a lot of things, it must also be considered that this aspect of his game is what makes the Tottenham striker so special.
