NFL Hall of Famer Morten Andersen offers Harry Kane kicking lessons
Tottenham Hotspur ace Harry Kane had earlier revealed that he wanted to be an NFL kicker in 10 to 12 years. With the football season currently brought to a standstill due to the coronavirus lockdown, he has been given an opportunity to fast-track his preparations.
According to the Daily Star, NFL Hall of Famer Morten Andersen has offered to help the 26-year-old to gain a start on his NFL dream. Anderson is the second-highest scorer in NFL history and Kane could surely pick up a trick or two from the sporting legend.
With the Spurs striker having to do without football, Andersen has offered to send the player his mental protocols so that he may visualize himself being an NFL kicker. He is keen to help Kane build up his mental aptitude. (h/t Daily Star)
“An idle mind is the devil’s playground, so I could certainly help Harry with his mental aptitude.”
Andersen expressed his interest to work with a talent such as Kane. He offered to make the player’s dream of scoring the winning kick in a Super Bowl a reality. If it does come to pass, he will become just the third player to score a decisive kick in American Football’s biggest game. (h/t Daily Star)
“If I can take one of the best European footballers and transition him into the best American sport, I’d be really proud.”
The former NFL star revealed that his offer still stands and given the free time on Kane’s hands, this is the best time to get started. The England captain is already a deft hand at kicks and had earlier showcased his aptitude for such on Twitter. You can check it out below. (h/t Daily Star)
