Let’s be honest, if Emmanuel Adebayor couldn’t get a gig in last night’s Capital One Cup tie with Hull City then it’s fairly safe to assume that his Tottenham career is over. That theory will only have been enhanced by the performance of Harry Kane who scored his second senior goal for the club at the death before despatching a calm penalty in the nervous shoot out.
Earlier this month, Spurs head coach Andre Villas-Boas said he was weighing up options for the 20 year old striker who hasn’t really benefited from recent loan spells to Norwich City and Leicester City.
“We can’t have a loan situation that does not work for him, like the ones that we have had before,” Andre said at the time.
“That’s why we have been very cautious with his next step, and we have not been in a rush in that situation.
“Why haven’t the loans worked before? Because he didn’t play.”
Speaking on the club’s official twitter feed Harry simply added,
‘It’s a proud moment for me and important for the team that it mattered as well. It (the second goal) felt good and I thought it was in all the way.’
Kane looked sharp when he came on against Cardiff earlier in the campaign and those at the game last night claim he looked far more threatening then Jermain Defoe. Spurs may be back in for a new centre forward in January but until then, Harry Kane probably deserves a run as the club’s third striker.
