Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane has been discussing his career in great detail, and suggested he could keep playing at the top level for another ten years.

Harry Kane has already had a phenomenal career, particularly when it comes to goalscoring. This year alone, the 29-year-old has become Tottenham‘s all-time leading goalscorer (GOAL) and England’s all-time leading goalscorer.

Spurs may have had a disastrous season by all accounts, both on and off the pitch, but Kane has been prolific throughout the campaign. He now has 32 goals this season, including 30 in the Premier League (Transfermarkt).

With his 30th birthday coming up in July, there are some who would argue his best days are now behind him, with some expecting the talismanic striker to be approaching a decline as he enters the twilight of his career.

However, Kane has been looking to the likes of Karim Benzema and Lionel Messi for inspiration and told The Independent that he can keep going until he is 40.

He said: “I am someone who always wants to push, always wants to get better, so if I am scoring goals at 39, then for sure I probably will play until I’m 40.

“I always said I think it depends how your career has gone and what you’ve achieved, what kind of mindset you are in at that stage.

“Sometimes there is a perception when you reach 30 that you’re coming to the end but in recent history, some of the players who have been Ballon d’Or winners or Champions League winners have been 35, 36, 37.

“I think as long as you stay mentally hungry and physically in a good place, which I am, then I feel like you can play as long as possible.

“For sure I want to be playing another seven or eight years at the highest level and hopefully I can do that.”

Kane’s strengths have never been in his more physical attributes, so even if he loses some pace over the next few years I cannot see it impacting his game too much.

He has a wonderful range of passing, incredible vision, and a spectacular level of footballing intelligence, so he can easily continue at the top level for many years to come.
