Harry Kane marked his first Premier League start for Spurs with a goal and an assist and although the display came against the league’s bottom side, it was one of the few positives to have come out of the last few weeks.
After the match against Sunderland, the striker was naturally delighted with the goal and hoped that this would be the start of a career in the top flight.
“I’ve been waiting for the opportunity to get the start and it was great to get the goal and hopefully I can push on and get a few more,” Kane said
“The Premier League is the top of the tree, and if you can do it there, then you can do it anywhere.
“So hopefully I will get a few more chances and a few more goals. There are five games left and you have to take each one as it comes.”
With Roberto Solado injured, the England Under 21 striker may get an extended run with Emmanuel Adebayor up front and even if the Spaniard does return before the end of the campaign, Harry looks a better option right now. The question is, what happens next season?
Back in October, Andre Villas-Boas said he was cautious over the player’s next move, suggesting that some of his previous loan spells had been a waste of time.
“We can’t have a loan situation that does not work for him, like the ones that we have had before,” AVB 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.”
He’s still only 20 but another loan stint does look to be nonsensical after Monday’s display. A new coach may have his own views on a young English centre forward but we would sincerely like to see Harry Kane given his chance as the club’s third striker during the next campaign.
