Harry Kane needs to prove he isn’t one-season wonder, says Spurs legend
Former Spurs midfielder Alan Mullery says Harry Kane must prove that he isn't a one-season wonder
Harry Kane must prove that he isn’t a one-season wonder, says former Tottenham man Alan Mullery.
The 22-year-old ended a seven-game goal drought on Saturday evening after Kane scored in a 6-0 victory over San Marino in their latest Euro 2016 qualifier.
He’s a good player, there’s no doubt about it. He’s got the right attitude, he’s good to talk to and he’s very confident about his own ability
Kane is still waiting for his first goal of the Premier League season after having drawn a blank against Manchester United, Leicester, Stoke City and Everton.
The England international scored 20 goals in 34 top-flight games last season as Kane was named the PFA’s young player of the year following an outstanding campaign.
And former Spurs midfielder Mullery believes Kane is facing a battle to prove that he isn’t a one-season hit.
“I’m glad for him, because since the season has started he’s missed a few chances, and that really takes you back and you start to lose confidence,” Mullery told talkSPORT.
“But the boy is a goalscorer, he chipped the goalkeeper beautifully for his goal against San Marino, and that will give him a lot more confidence so when he goes back to Spurs he can start scoring again.
“He’s only 21 and he’s still learning his trade. He did his apprenticeship last season, where he got into the side and regularly scored goals, and now he’s got to prove to everyone that he’s not a one season wonder.
“He’s a good player, there’s no doubt about it. He’s got the right attitude, he’s good to talk to and he’s very confident about his own ability.
“He’ll score goals again this season.”
Kane scored 31 times in 51 games in all competitions for the north London side last season.
The Spurs man was linked with a move to Manchester United in the summer transfer window.
