Kane con­demns crit­ics

Lesotho Times - - Sport -

LON­DON — Scor­ing his first Premier League goal of the sea­son will si­lence the crit­ics who have tried to sad­dle him with a “one-sea­son won­der” tag, Tot­ten­ham Hot­spur striker Harry Kane (pic­tured) has said.

The Eng­land in­ter­na­tional broke his sea­son-long drought for his club when he clipped in a re­bound af­ter Chris­tian Erik­sen’s free kick struck the cross­bar in their 4-1 drub­bing of Manch­ester City on Satur­day.

The 22-year-old Kane was one of the rev­e­la­tions of last sea­son find­ing the back of the net 31 times but, be­fore the City game, had failed to score in eight ap­pear­ances in all com­pe­ti­tions for Spurs this cam­paign, lead­ing some pun­dits and fans to ques­tion whether his feats last term were a one-off.

“Maybe I shut up a few peo­ple who have been talk­ing over the last few weeks,” Kane was quoted as say­ing by Sky Sports.

“Only seven games (in the league) and a few peo­ple said ‘one-sea­son won­der’. Peo­ple can judge me at the end of the sea­son and we will go from there. I have to stay fo­cused but it is great to score. — Reuters
