Spurs Web Opinion
Even Spurs fans will admit that last year wasn’t Kane’s best year particularly due to the two ankle injuries he picked up. While his strike rate is still up there with the best, we know that he is capable of much more. The fact that he received so many votes even during a relatively average season shows how highly regarded he is around the world.
