Oliver Skipp backs Spurs skipper Harry Kane after return at Wolves
Spurs skipper Harry Kane made his return to the first XI this weekend at Wolves, and midfielder Oliver Skipp has backed his captain to contribute.
Skipp himself has enjoyed a fine start to life under Nuno Santo. He’s been given the chance to impress, and he’s taken it in his stride.
Tottenham have won both their opening games of the season. Sunday’s 1-0 win over Wolves was a hard fought affair. But it showed the steel in this Spurs side under Santo.
Of course, all eyes were on the return of Kane. A turbulent summer has left Kane’s Spurs future in doubt. But he was well received by the fans, and could well end up staying put.
And Skipp, speaking to The Evening Standard, is in no doubt about what Kane brings to the table.
“Harry’s one of the best strikers in the world, so we’re always happy when he’s available,” Skipp told the Standard.
“Everyone knows what Harry is, he’s a professional, so he’ll give it his all when he comes on the pitch. He’s always one of the best trainers and he’s continued to do that. As you saw yesterday when he came on, he had that impact.”
Kane didn’t have too many chances to get in on the goalscoring at Molineux but he did help Spurs see the game out professionally.
TBR’s View: Professional from Kane, but not over yet
Kane will continue to perform for Spurs. Nobody really doubts that, it’s just dependant on Nuno Santo picking him really.
But, and this is a big but, this week will be a big week for everyone involved in the Kane to City saga. The Manchester club are expected to come again with a bid. Daniel Levy, of course, is determined to hold firm.
