Former Spurs goalkeeper Paul Robinson is urging the club to think about signing another striker this summer.
As Sam Dean of The Telegraph reports, London club striker Harry Kane spent more than half of last season playing in the “critical zone” (two games of at least 45 minutes at intervals of five days).
In addition to playing for the English national team and the league, this year Tottenham earned themselves a ticket to the Champions League, which causes an additional load on the striker.
Sky Sports expert Robinson says another striker is needed to replace the England captain in certain fixtures. The 42-year-old goalkeeper told Football Insider:
”The amount of football Spurs have next season, plus the World Cup, they need someone. Harry Kane cannot physically play all of those games. The manager has to have another option. It is glaringly obvious that they need somebody in that area.”
So, Antonio Conte’s team needs a back-up striker, because with a lot of matches there is a risk of Kane’s injury, which will lead to negative results as the season goes on.
