Jermaine Jenas reveals what he would like to see Harry Kane change in his game

Harry Kane returned to action for Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League final against Liverpool in June.

The forward had been sidelined with the ankle injury he picked up in the quarter final first leg against Manchester City.

Kane’s performance in the European showpiece was a disappointment, he looked lethargic and rarely touched the ball.

Despite scoring two late goals in the opening day win against Aston Villa, Kane has so far this season failed to show the energy levels which we are used to seeing.

Former Spurs midfielder Jermaine Jenas admitted that Kane was poor throughout the defeat to Newcastle and wants to see the England international try and drop deeper and help influence the game.

Those who have watched the opening three top flight fixtures would have noticed that Kane has been playing almost on the shoulder of the central defenders and it is certainly not helping to try and create space in behind the opposition.

Jenas told the BBC: “Harry Kane has been poor in both halves. It was similar against Aston Villa but then he popped up and scored. However, I would like to see more from him, see him get deeper and have more of an influence on the game.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. I totally agree with Jermaine. When Kane had his best two seasons for Spurs he played deeper and was an absolute menace for defenders to deal with. He was strong, held the ball up and was deceptively quick and he scored goals. In the last couple of seasons I think his focus to too much on scoring goals and not affecting the game as he did when he first burst onto the scene.
