Burnley manager Sean Dyche has expressed his admiration for Tottenham striker Harry Kane, as per Sky Sports News.
He also laid down the gauntlet to his own strikers to work as hard as they can to get to his level, in terms of quality and professionalism.
Dyche said: “I think the main two (Chris) Wood and (Ashley) Barnes, [are getting more recognition]. The main two that people are talking about, I think so. They are not Harry Kane yet, I’m a big fan of his, everyone knows that. He’s a top player and a top professional.
“We are looking for the players to continue to adapt and continue to improve. It’s an ongoing thing, this is what we’ve always asked of our players. Not just their performances, which of course are very important to continue our journey in the Premier League, but also learning and improving.”
TBR’s View – Kane’s work ethic is an example to players across the league
Hard work and professionalism are words associated with managers like Dyche and teams like Burnley but that’s wrong.
All the very top players are the most driven, single-minded and hard-working and Kane is absolutely no different.
He is not the most natural striker but he has worked tirelessly to get himself to the very top of the game, where he is as dangerous as any player in world football when on his game.
