Harry Kane arguably came the closest to doubling Tottenham’s advantage during yesterday’s 1-0 win over Cardiff and after the game, Head Coach Tim Sherwood praised the 20 year olds’ patience during his three years at the club.
“He’s had to be very patient. If I was Harry Kane, I’d be banging my door down every day and saying ‘why aren’t I getting an opportunity to play’ but he’s respectful enough to know that we’ve got world-class strikers,” Sherwood said.
“He will get his time,” he added.
With Jermain Defoe out of the way and no possibility of new signings until the summer, the England under 21 striker is now set for an extended run as first choice back up to Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado.
“Harry Kane has done brilliant,” Tim continued. “Since he’s been back as the third striker he’s been fantastic in training.”
Kane has featured four times in the Premiership this season – a campaign in which he doubled his tally of senior goals for the club. Those appearances will rise from now until May but can he convince coach and supporters that he can keep the third striker’s berth into 2014-15 and beyond?
