“Up there with the best”: Tottenham duo hail 28-year-old superstar ahead of Villa clash

Tottenham duo Sergio Reguilon, Bryan Gil in awe of Harry Kane ahead of Villa clash

Speaking to Sky Sports ahead of the game against Aston Villa (h/t football.london), Tottenham Hotspur’s Spanish duo Sergio Reguilon and Bryan Gil gave their assessment on star striker Harry Kane.

The 28-year-old Kane has had a rather uncharacteristically poor start to the new season, having failed to score in a single Premier League game so far in 2021/22. He hasn’t looked the part for large phases of the ongoing campaign, but the midweek hat-trick against NS Mura in the UEFA Europa Conference League offered some hope to the Tottenham faithful that he may get back to form again.

Ahead of the Aston Villa clash, Tottenham duo Reguilon and Gil were quizzed about what they made of Kane’s misfiring start to the season. Reguilon, who is in his second season with the club and has seen what Kane can do when he gets going, said:

“He’s still right up there with the best three to five strikers in the world. It’s only natural that a run without scoring can impact morale, but he showed on Thursday that his confidence hasn’t been affected. I’m in no doubt that he’ll continue scoring goals throughout the season as he’s always done.”

Gil, who arrived at the club only this summer, echoed his Spanish international teammate’s opinion regarding Kane, backing him to go on a spree after netting the hat-trick.

“I think it’s crazy when people doubt his quality. If you know how strikers live, you can be five games without scoring, and then you may go on a run of scoring in five or six games. Strikers live off scoring streaks, so maybe now he’ll be on a run. We saw that on Thursday, and I’m pretty sure he’ll score between 20 and 30 goals this season.”

It is clear that Kane continues to enjoy the faith and support of his teammates despite the slow start. Fans can only hope that the midweek display against NS Mura was a point of turnaround for the England captain.
