Jack Wilshere has stated that he is not concerned about Harry Kane’s form for Tottenham because he is an Arsenal fan.
Kane, 28, has struggled to muster up any kind of form for Spurs this season and is still waiting to notch his first goal in the Premier League.
This also appeared to translate onto the international stage with England this week, after the Three Lions captain had a hard time getting involved in the recent World Cup qualifier against Hungary.
Much of Kane’s form has been put down to the uncertainty surrounding his future, especially after a heavily touted move to Manchester City failed to materialise in the summer.
Wilshere was quizzed on the Spurs striker’s form this season but issued an honest answer in response.
Wilshere told talkSPORT (14/10/21 at 7:41 am): “It doesn’t concern me, no. I am an Arsenal fan, so.
“Harry is one of the best strikers in the world. When you think of the top strikers in the world, Lewandowski, Benzema and Harry Kane. Like goal-scorers.”
Wilshere, who is back training with Arsenal while working toward his coaching badges, managed to put his Gunners loyalties aside, and insists Kane will ‘come back’ for Spurs and England despite his dip in form.
He added: “Harry scores goals and will always score goals. He might have a little dip now and again, but he will come back. He is another player that is technically so good, in front of goal. Left foot and right foot.
“Tottenham have had a difficult spell as well. At times, that’s difficult for a striker when he’s not getting the chances created for him. Harry is a top player, he has been a top player for years. He will come back for club and country strong.”

Kane has often started campaigns slowly, but it seems different on this occasion. We don’t know if it is a personal thing or something to do with how Spurs are playing as a whole, but something definitely seems to be off with him. Hopefully, the next slot of domestic fixtures will see him get back on track.
