Kyle Walker-Peters admitted he was almost reduced to tears when Harry Kane scored against Aston Villa on Saturday.
Tottenham looked set to draw their Premier League opener against the new boys after debutant Tanguy Ndombele had cancelled out John McGinn’s first-half strike. But the ever-reliable Kane stepped up and struck twice in the final five minutes to secure a 3-1 win.
Remarkably, those goals were Kane’s first ever on the opening-day of a league campaign, and his third and fourth in his last three matches in the month of August.
And the 22-year-old, who played 90 minutes on just his seventh league start for the club he supported as a boy, revealed just how much those emotional kind of victories mean to him personally.
In an interview with Spurs’ official website, Walker-Peters said: “I was just thinking about how much I love Harry Kane. Honestly, I could have cried on the pitch. It was that sort of emotion as the goal went in. Growing up in Tottenham, I just love the club, so those moments mean just that little bit extra.”
You’re not alone, Kyle/
