Harry Kane has stated that there is ‘going to be noise’ when he’s not scoring for Tottenham, as he told Footy with Uti.
The England captain made it clear that he looks at the ‘bigger picture’ and how he helps Spurs when he is not putting the ball into the back of the net, relays the HITC.
Despite being the Premier League’s top-scorer last season, Kane only has one goal to his name this time around and is showing signs of struggle.
A lot has been said about the 28-year-old this season and the performances he has produced after a drama-filled summer.
After helping England reach the final of Euro 2020, there was a lot of talk about Kane possibly leaving for Manchester City and those well-documented rumours resulted in him having no pre-season, whatsoever.
Kane opened up on his performances and how he looks at the ‘bigger package’ when he is out in the middle.
“Obviously, goals are what strikers are judged on the majority of the time,” said Kane.
“But I feel like my game is so much more than that. I would always be confident at scoring goals, no matter how many games I go without scoring or if I score every game. I feel like if you give me a chance, then I would be ready to take it.
“Of course, I know there is going to be noise if I don’t score for a few games or things like that because people always don’t look at the bigger picture.
“But the way I have always looked at things is the bigger package. If I am not scoring but I still feel like I am playing to a high level and helping the team, then that’s all that matters. And that’s kind of my mindset.”
Kane won’t be able to end his goal drought in the Premier League anytime soon because of the COVID outbreak at the club.
Tottenham’s home game against Rennes in the Europa Conference League was postponed on Thursday night, so was their Premier League clash against Brighton on Sunday.
It remains to be seen whether their fixture against Leicester will be played on Thursday, but this fixture pile-up helps no one’s cause at the club.
Spurs are already playing catch up after their away clash against Burnley was postponed because of the snow last week.
But this is the last thing Antonio Conte needed because his team have been flying high since his arrival.
