Michael Owen lauds Harry Kane after brilliance during win over Leicester
Michael Owen has lauded Harry Kane for his superb volley which proved the catalyst for Tottenham to defeat Leicester City 4-2 and pour cold water on their Champions League hopes.
The 27-year-old scored an equaliser for Spurs in the first half. With the ball swirling out of the sky, he lashed an unstoppable effort past Kasper Schmeichel with a vicious volley.
Owen knows a thing or two about scoring goals in the Premier League and he believes his goal was a lot harder than it might have looked to supporters on the television.
After the game, the ex-Liverpool man waxed lyrical about the Tottenham talisman for his moment of sheer brilliance at the King Power Stadium.
Owen told Optus Sport: “It will look easy to people who haven’t kicked a ball, but when it comes to you like that and has top spin on it’s virtually impossible to do that – usually it goes over the crossbar.
“He actually hit the ball right in the middle against the spin and still hits it perfectly – the difficulty level of that is unbelievable.”
TBR View: Keeping Kane would be massive for Tottenham
The Spurs striker will now focus his attentions on the European Championships with England – but speculation will remain rife regarding his future.
Manchester City have been linked with a move to sign the world-class centre forward, whilst Manchester United have also been linked with a move in the past.
It’s fair to say that Kane is desperate to win some silverware and given Tottenham’s predicaments in recent teams, it would seem he remains unconvinced.
If Tottenham could land a quality manager though and match Kane’s ambitions, perhaps he could be tempted into seeing out his current contract with the club.
That would be a massive boost for the football club going into next season and it’ll be interesting to see if Tottenham can keep hold of their star man.
