After his awesome 2014-15 season, many doubted he would be able to replicate the same form next year, when he would no longer be a surprise to his opponents.
He proved those doubters wrong, again and again, finishing as the Premier League’s top scorer in back-to-back seasons.
Harry Kane has had his fair share of doubters, he has enjoyed countless praise as well though, and as he said before Tottenham’s game at APOEL, in Cyprus, he has actually used some of that praise as extra motivation.
I use it. With social media these days it’s difficult to stay away from it. I want to be one of the best players in the world, so when people put it up and I see I am close to those players, it is a great incentive to get closer and go to the next step
the English striker told reporters when asked how he feels about being compared to Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
As for what helps him to get better and better, the 24-year-old credited his improvement to… simple things.
It’s kind of down to growing up, getting older and more mature, filling out in my body. I feel stronger holding off defenders maybe better than I was before. I eat well, I recover well. That is what it is all about
Kane said, repeating how important it is to stay hungry for improvement, not letting a week go wasted.
Your football career is a short career so you have to make the most of every week and every day. That is what I try and do and when I am old enough to retire and go and play golf that is what I will do. At the moment it is just about using every day, especially with the amount of games we play, to recover, eat healthy and go from there
the Tottenham striker said.
