Harry Kane speaks about his substitution, after scoring hat-trick for Tottenham
Harry Kane has told BT Sport – as per BBC Live – that he had not spoken about his introduction from the bench with Tottenham boss Nuno.
Kane, 28, was brought on to the field of play for Dane Scarlett – having started on the bench against Mura. Spurs were winning 2-1.
But the momentum of the match was swinging in the favour of Mura. They had just got one back, after goals from Dele Alli and Gio Lo Celso.
Eventually, Spurs ended up winning 5-1 – after a brilliant hat-trick from Kane. Coming on after 58 minutes, he netted three goals.
He doubled his tally for the 21-22 season in the space of 30 minutes. Speaking after, he says he did not speak to Nuno about coming on.
“We hadn’t spoken about it. It depended on how the game went. Momentum shifted in their favour. It was about coming on, doing a job for the team.”
Kane on substitution: Hat-trick might kick Tottenham into gear
Not just himself, but Spurs as a whole. Tottenham need Kane and when Kane is playing, Spurs are clearly a much better side.
While Kane is yet to register a goal or an assist in the Premier League, he does already have six goals in Cup competitions.
He will now go into Sunday’s clash against Aston Villa with the chance to break his duck – and the confidence of scoring a hat-trick a few days ago.
In actual fact, bringing Kane on for just 30 minutes but allowing him to run riot against Mura is a bit of managerial genius from Nuno. Well played.
