“He was a striker that I really admired”: Tottenham superstar reveals who he idolised when he was young

Harry Kane

Harry Kane will be leading the Three Lions out in the World Cup as the team hopes for a great showing in Russia.

The World Cup will be the latest challenge for the Tottenham striker and there has a lot been said about what all the Englishman can achieve, not only for England but for Spurs too.

The 24-year-old striker sat down with Thierry Henry for a Sky Sports interview and was asked a number of questions about what he wants to achieve next with Tottenham and also which players he would have loved to play with.

“The main thing is trophies. I’ve been playing at this level for four years now, yet to win a trophy.”

Kane also outlined that he wants to improve and get better by scoring more goals and help his team more by providing more assists and also becoming better at hold-up play.

Kane admires Ronaldo

Things got more interesting when Henry asked Kane which player he looked at and the Tottenham man named one star that everyone would know, the Brazilian Ronaldo.

“He was great, I’ve watched his stuff on YouTube and things like that. He was a striker that I really admired.

“He was the first one I looked at and said ‘Wow!’ I want to be a goal scorer”

The former France international also asked Kane which players would he have loved to work with and the English striker in a jiffy answered that he would have loved to play alongside Henry but then took a more measured stance and said, David Beckham.

The former Manchester United man was not the only player that Kane named and said that he would have loved to partner Teddy Sheringham, a former Tottenham man.

Hopefully, we will be able to provide Kane with a few trophies next season but for now, it is all about the World Cup for the English striker.
