As shared by football.london, Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte holds a very promising belief on star striker Harry Kane.
The Lowdown: Kane shines in north London…
Since the Italian’s arrival at N17, coming after a summer being repeatedly linked with a move to Man City, Kane has now rediscovered his imperious form which attracted Pep Guardiola’s interest in the first place.
The England international, despite not getting on the scoresheet against Middlesbrough, has been fantastic in the Premier League recently – putting in match-winning displays against both Manchester City and Leeds United away from home.
Following his most recent heroics at Elland Road, Conte now believes that the 28-year-old is undergoing a transformation.
The Latest: Conte wowed by Kane…
The former Chelsea boss, speaking to the press (via football.london), says the forward is now evolving into a ‘complete’ and ‘total’ player.
“Harry is not only a number nine. He can became also a number 10 at the same time,” the Spurs coach said.
“You’ve seen the assist for Sonny which was amazing, it was incredible, but for sure, for him to continue to work in this way, he’s becoming a total player, a complete player.
“To be a number nine and 10 the same moment, it means you’re really, really one of the best strikers in the world.”
The Verdict: Exciting turn of form…
Kane’s spell of form under ex-manager Nuno Espirito Santo at the start of 2021/2022 was certainly one to forget.
However, after Conte’s arrival, it appears Spurs supporters can enjoy seeing the Three Lions superstar back to his often unplayable best.
Journalist Matt Law of The Telegraph, speaking to GiveMeSport, claimed the player is even ‘underrated’ despite his world class status, but if he continues in this vain, he certainly won’t be for much longer.
