Football.London’s Alasdair Gold revealed that Harry Kane had four full days of training ahead of the Brighton clash after returning from the United States.
Kane, along with the majority of the Tottenham players, put in a lacklustre performance yesterday, with Brighton taking away all three points thanks to a late winner by Leandro Trossard.
The home side failed to register a single shot on target through the ninety minutes.
Some Spurs fans on social media questioned whether Kane’s public trip to the US to watch the Masters was to blame for the striker looking so off-colour.
Harry Kane unreal ghost sesh today. Still jet lagged from flying out to the states this week to watch the golf.

Spurs have been atrocious. Romero & Kane the pick of the worst 2. Unbelievably lethargic performance. As bad as anything under Nuno. Well played Brighton thoroughly deserved win. Kane put golf ahead of Spurs. Players all look dead.

Outdone tactically by Brighton & Potter.
Substitutions made the team worse.
Kane seemingly not caught up on sleep from his golf trip.
All round lack of effort from the whole side.

Glad Kane had a nice day out at the golf anyway

Kane wat off it today. Have to question why at such an important stage of the season he's jetting off to watch golf when his focus should be on this game

However, Gold has now explained that Kane flew back to London soon after the final day of the Masters last Sunday.
The striker is said to have joined the remainder of the Spurs squad in training on Tuesday and reportedly had four full days of training ahead of the clash against the Seagulls
So, the 28-year-old seemingly had more than enough time to overcome his jetlag.
Spurs Web Opinion
Some fans were always going to be upset if Kane did not produce the goods following his public trip to the US. I personally have no problem with what the striker did and I do not think it is fair to question his professionalism.
However, there is perhaps a lesson to be learned for Kane in keeping his private life a little more discreet. Footballers are under a lot of scrutiny in the age of social media and I do not think it is wise for them to broadcast what they do off the pitch.
