Kane dreams of be­ing Eng­land, Spurs skipper

Kuwait Times - - SPORTS -

Pro­lific striker Harry Kane is proud of his lead­er­ship skills and dreams one day of cap­tain­ing both boy­hood club Tot­ten­ham Hot­spur and Eng­land. Kane, who came through the ranks at the north Lon­don club, has be­come a key fig­ure for Mauri­cio Po­chet­tino’s side af­ter scor­ing 49 Premier League goals since his break­through 2014-15 cam­paign. The 23-year-old re­mains an in­flu­en­tial fig­ure for Eng­land, de­spite fail­ing to live up to ex­pec­ta­tions dur­ing the country’s woe­ful Euro 2016 cam­paign. “It’s my per­son­al­ity. I’ve al­ways been a leader, on and off the pitch. I don’t think a cap­tain is just hav­ing the abil­ity to shout on the pitch, or moan at some­one,” Kane said in an in­ter­view with the Times. “It comes with a whole pack­age ... meet­ing with the fans and hav­ing that aura in the dress­ing room. I’ve man­aged to cap­tain Spurs a cou­ple of times. It would be a dream to cap­tain Spurs full time and cap­tain Eng­land. Who wouldn’t want to do that?” Kane also lauded Po­chet­tino’s brav­ery for giv­ing youth a chance rather than tak­ing the easy route of buy­ing ex­pe­ri­enced play­ers.—Reuters
