Erik Lamela praises Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane

Harry Kane has scored seven goals in his last four games for Tottenham Hotspur.

Erik Lamela has told the London Evening Standard that his Tottenham Hotspur teammate Harry Kane is worth his weight in gold because of his fantastic attitude.

Kane had a remarkable breakthrough season last year, when he smashed in 31 goals.

He has quickly risen to prominence, and is now one of Tottenham’s biggest stars, but Lamela has credited the striker for remaining so grounded.

“He has exactly the same approach to life as he did when I first met him, long before he became the player he is now,” Lamela said.

"He has never changed, always putting in the maximum. That’s not the case with everyone whose career goes through the changes his has, and in my opinion, that is worth gold. I like the way he conducts himself so I’m really happy he is doing well, and I’m convinced he will continue to do so.

“He’s a strong guy, he’s always in the right place, he has ambition and he wants to win. That is very important. We’re almost the same age, and I train with him every day so I know he is a very normal, down-to-earth guy.”

Kane is now playing a crucial role for Tottenham and England, with his reputation continuing to grow.

Although the 22-year-old struggled for goals over the early part of this campaign, he has battled against these struggles and is now back to his best.

Kane has netted seven times in his last four matches for Spurs, and it will be important for Mauricio Pochettino’s side that he maintains his fine form.

Tottenham are currently battling for a Champions League qualification berth, with the North London outfit’s next match coming against capital rivals, and fellow top-four hopefuls, West Ham United at the weekend.
