Nuno Espirito Santo claimed he thought Harry Kane played well after coming off the bench against Wolves this afternoon.
Spurs took the lead early on in the game through a Dele Alli penalty, which surely would have been taken by Kane had he been on the pitch.
However, the England captain was named among the substitutes and came on after around 70 minutes to replace Heung-min Son.
Kane even had a chance to score after Steven Bergwijn played him in, but the shot was saved smartly. It has to be said that Harry’s all-around game was very neat and tidy during his cameo though.
Nuno certainly seemed to echo those thoughts in his post-match press conference, while adding that Kane was still in the process of building his fitness up.
Kane didn’t play a part in any of Tottenham’s pre-season friendlies, or the matches against Man City and Pacos de Ferreira last week.
Nuno said (Jonathan Veal): “He can still improve, we are not putting a bar on it. He is getting better.”
He added: “I think he did well, he helped the team, he had a good chance. Harry is still in the process of increasing and improving his level of fitness, but he is one of the best players in the world.”
Spurs Web Opinion:
Tottenham looked better in the 20 minutes with Kane on the pitch, simple as that. The striker slowed and calmed things down, barely misplaced a pass, and created some dangerous attacks.
