Roy Keane can't believe what people are saying about Tottenham star Harry Kane
Roy Keane has jumped to the defence of Tottenham striker Harry Kane. The England captain was once again quiet as England drew with Hungary but Keane told ITV that the criticism is unjust.
Kane has found the net six times during 2021/22. Three of those came against minnows NS Mura in the Europa Conference League; whilst he’s yet to score in the Premier League.
Some seem to think that his failed move to Manchester City is to blame. Supporters and pundits think his head has been turned and that he should have been allowed to move.
Kane was linked with a move to the champions. That never transpired, however, and the England man has stuck with Tottenham for the short term.
The 28-year-old has been defended by Keane though. The former Manchester United title-winner can’t believe that people are even questioning the talisman.
He told ITV: “For England, it’s not a problem. He’s had his problems at club level and the team aren’t doing great recently.
“But I can’t believe we’re going to be standing here doubting Harry Kane, are we?”
Kane missed out on breaking Wayne Rooney’s record of goals scored in competitive matches last night. He will now hope to get those when England face Albania and San Marino next month.
Incredible: Keane is right; lay off Tottenham star Kane
There have been times in his career when he’s seemed superhuman but ultimately Kane is a human being. As a result, he’s entitled to a blip in a career that has seen him score for fun.
In 346 games for Spurs, the striker has found the net 227 times and has also found the time to register 49 assists. Not bad, for a player who people are now starting to question.
Tottenham hardly play a style that is suited to a centre-forwards brilliance right now and with that in mind, that represents a conundrum for Nuno Espirito Santo.
Keane is right; leave Kane alone!
