Kane not setting any targets for next season

Harry Kane has today stated that he is fully aware of what lies ahead next season after his breakthrough campaign in the Premier League but remains confident he will rise to the challenge.

The striker scored 21 Premier League goals last season which has led to him becoming the hottest English prospect, and naturally with that has come heavy speculation linking Kane with a move to Manchester United.

Thankfully as “one of our own”, Kane has distanced himself away from a move by insisting he is already at a big club and is looking forward to next season.

All pundits are waiting to see how Kane will cope next season with added pressure and how the opposition will look to neutralise his threat in front of goal now they have seen what he is capable of.

Harry Kane, speaking as he joined the race to partner Lionel Messi on the EA SPORTS FIFA 16 UK Cover in an exclusive interview with Goal.com, said, “I haven’t any targets for next year but I know it’s going to be tough. Defenders are going to be more wary of me but I’m ready for that. All I can do is concentrate on my own performances, do it again next year and try to improve.”

“I think defenders are giving me more attention now but that’s part of it and you have to deal with that as a striker. It’s about how you cope with that and that’s something I’ve got to learn and deal with next year.”

Kane also paid tribute to the improvements Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has made to his game: “The manager has been great. He’s worked a lot on me physically and individually. He’s done a lot of extra sessions to help me with my movement and my finishing and things like that. We will continue to do that so I can hopefully get better.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Why would he have targets? He'd have an intention — to play well with the team, to keep goals out at one end, and to score goals at the other end — but 'targets' is a recipe for dissatisfaction and then grumbling at the usual scapegoats. Which is why football pundits so often talk about targets and then about them being unrealistic/unlikely/failed etc. And if a team 'exceeds target', what then? Harry Kane having no 'targets' underlines just what a thoughtful type he is. He sees the trap and avoids it.
