Speaking before Wolves’ 2-0 win at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium yesterday, Conor Coady lavished praise on England teammate Harry Kane.

After a sluggish start to the season, Kane is now well and truly back to his old self, with the striker once again finding the back of the net with regularity.

Antonio Conte has praised the 28-year-old’s all-around play, with the Spurs boss insisting that Kane is now improving when it comes to winning duals against the opposition defenders and in his hold up play (Football.London).

According to reports, the England captain has himself been surprised by how quickly his sharpness has improved under Conte (The Athletic).

Tottenham fans will be hoping that the striker can now go on a good run until the end of the season and fire the club to a top-four finish.

Coady is certainly well aware of what Kane can do, having played against him on plenty of occasions in the Premier League, as well as with him in the England set-up.

The Wolves captain raved about the Tottenham man’s qualities as a player and a person. However, he went on to keep him pretty quiet and earn a clean sheet in North London yesterday. 

Coady told The Friday Football Social on BBC Radio 5 Live, 7:30 pm, February 11, 2022) about Kane: “Honestly, the best. The best. What a player. What a person. What a character. What a captain.

“He has absolutely everything when it comes to football, when it comes to being a person, when it comes to being a leader, he has absolutely everything. 

“When you come up against him, it is one of the toughest afternoons you will ever have.

“You don’t really know where he is going. He can drop deep. He is so clever in terms of positions he picks up, then he can also play on your shoulder as well. He is an incredible footballer.”

Spurs Web Opinion

I believe that fellow professionals are often the best judges of players, and all of Kane’s teammates, at England and Spurs, rave about the 28-year-old as a player and a person.

Hopefully, we can continue progression as a team under Conte, which convinces the striker to commit his long-term future to Tottenham.
