Troy Deeney has revealed that he has heard from people who have worked with Harry Kane that the Tottenham Hotspur star is an extremely hard worker in training and that often stays behind after the session has ended to work on his shooting.
While Spurs fans have been aware of Kane’s outrageous ability for a long time, it is fair to say that if any opposition fans still had any doubts about whether the 27-year-old was ‘world-class’, his performances this season have well have truly put those doubts to bed.
Not only has the England captain continued to score at a prolific rate but he has also shown that he can be an extremely effective playmaker due to his vision and passing range.
However, it is Kane’s finishing that is arguably his best attribute, with the striker having the ability to find the back of the net from various angles and distances.
Deeney claimed that comes from hours of tireless practice, with Kane often shooting often getting shots away in training from different angles in order to feel comfortable in match situations.
The Watford striker told talkSPORT Breakfast with Laura Woods: “I have worked with people that have worked with him and said what he is like on the training pitch.
“Stays out every day and does shooting from all sorts of angles.
“I remember the goal he scored against Arsenal at White Hart Lane, from that mad angle.
“Everyone was saying ‘that’s no fluke’’ He is out practising from weird and strange angles. And you are thinking ‘what are you doing?’ But he just wants to feel comfortable in every situation.
“I think under the current system, it actually helps him. There is more depth to his game. There is, of course, the assists.”
Spurs Web Opinion
While one has to obviously have a certain level of natural talent to get to the level Kane has got to, the Tottenham star owes a lot of his success to sheer hard work and determination. It is fair to say that Kane was by no means the most gifted player to have come through the Spurs academy over the past couple of decades but what set him apart the rest was his willingness to keep improving every single day.
