Tottenham Hotspur striker, Harry Kane has said he is ready to allow the club’s new coach Antonia Conte to improve him at the club. He said though he has made a name for himself in the world of football, he still has a lot to learn from the game.
Last season, the 28-year-old English football star ended the 2020-2021 season as the Premier League’s highest goalscorer and the highest assists provider. Despite such individual brilliance, he did not win any title with the club.
Ahead of the 2021-2022 season, Kane tried to leave Tottenham Hotspur but could not. Hence, he ended up staying at the club for the ongoing season.
Since the season commenced, Harry Kane has been struggling to score or assist in the Premier League unlike in previous seasons.
So far this season, Kane has scored just a goal and provided an assist in the Premier League. He has scored 7 goals and provided 2 assists in 15 games in all competitions.
Due to Kane’s inconsistent form in the Premier League this season, Tottenham Hotspur have recorded 5 defeats and 5 wins which have forced the club to remain on the 9th spot with 15 points in 10 games.
The club’s poor form has forced the club to sack Nuno Espirito Santo who the club appointed last summer. The club appointed the former coach of Inter Milan, Antonio Conte after Nuno’s exit.
Ahead of the Tottenham Hotspur Premier League game against Burnley scheduled to kick off at 15:00 on Sunday, November 7, Kane said he and his teammates should take responsibility for whatever happens at the club.
“I am a player that always believes in myself and always believes in my ability,” Kane said. “I am 28 years old, I have still got a lot to learn, a lot to improve on.
“It’s not been the start I wanted, the team wanted or the club wanted, so we all know that. We all have to take responsibility for it as players.
“It is not something I am worried about, I will keep working and I am really excited about working with this manager.
“I am sure he can improve me and that is an exciting thing when you have done what I have done in the game so far and still feel like there is more to come, that is exciting so I am looking forward to it.”
On Conte’s appointment, Kane added: “It shows great ambition, to be honest, his resume speaks for itself, everyone knows how highly thought of he is and what he has done as a manager in the game.
“You have to respect that. He will work as hard as he can to improve us as players but it is about us as players, taking it in, learning, doing more on the pitch, doing more in training, doing more away from training, whether it is recovery, making sure we give ourselves every opportunity to win.
“We have a manager and a club that believe in us. He definitely brings a lot of passion, a lot of determination, whether that’s on the training pitch or in meetings, in the dressing room.
“His resume speaks for itself, he has won trophies at the highest level with the biggest clubs so everyone is excited to learn, excited to work under him and that passion he shows every day, every meeting, every training session is what you thrive on.
“You go into games wanting to put your body on the line for him and you can feel that already.
“It has only been three days but he is a fantastic manager. We haven’t reached the standards we have wanted to over the last couple of years, but we hope that this manager can help us turn it around.”
