Spurs boss Conte has no qualms over Kane’s attitude

Antonio Conte has actually stated Harry Kane is “totally involved in the Tottenham project” in spite of a modest start to the season.

Kane was connected with a pre-season relocate to Manchester City however the offer failed.

Lots of experts felt his failure to sign up with the Premier League champs has actually added to Kane’s bad type in the early phases of the project — although England’s agonising charge shoot-out loss to Italy in the Euro 2020 last at Wembley might have played a part too.

England captain Kane found goals hard to come by when Nuno Espirito Santo, sacked in November and replaced by Conte, was in charge of Tottenham and even now the striker has actually scored just nine goals in all competitions this season.

However, he scored a second Premier League goal of the project against Liverpool last weekend and the 28-year-old will aim to build on that performance when Spurs are at home to London rivals Crystal Palace on Sunday.

Even so, Kane’s returns have been a long way off last season’s 23 objectives and 14 helps in the Premier League.

“Harry has showed me great availability and showed me (he is) totally involved in the Tottenham project,” Conte stated Friday.

“I see him every day and I see that he is happy,” the Italian included.

“He leads in the training ground, he leads in the dressing room and he leads during the training sessions in a fantastic way. I am happy for what I am seeing every day.”
