Spurs fans have known for the best part of six years that Harry Kane is one of the most well-rounded number nines in world football.
However, it feels as though others are only now waking up to that reality this season, partly owing to the different role that the striker is playing.
The England captain seems to be dropping deeper with much more regularity and looking to pick out runners ahead of him.
This has been reflected in the stats, with the 27-year-old now leading the assists charts in the Premier League, with eight so far this season.
Remarkably this does not seem to have affected his goal-scoring either as he has still found the back of the net ten times in all competitions (transfermarkt.com).
The striker has also made a big contribution defensively to Jose Mourinho’s side, having made more blocks, more clearances, and more tackles than any striker in the league.
So the club’s social media administrator decided to pay tribute to his all-round ability and took some creative liberty in the process by also listing ‘goalkeeper’ as one of Kane’s attributes.
Goalkeeper ✔️ 😅

As Spurs fans will be aware, Kane decided to don the gloves in a Europa Leauge game against Asteras Tripolis in 2014 after netting a hat-trick at the other end, as Hugo Lloris was sent off in the latter stages of the match.
Form Spurs midfielder, Ryan Mason was not having any of it though, as he reminded people that his former Tottenham teammate was not a particularly good goalkeeper, having let one fairly straight-forward shot into the net against the Greek side.
Maybe take the goalkeeper one out 🤔 🤣 https://t.co/iPYICE95wn
