Harry Kane believes that he is “good enough” to be a first-team player at Tottenham.
The 20-year-old striker has established himself as a member of the Spurs senior squad under the guidance of Tim Sherwood, who has put his faith in young players since taking over as manager of the White Hart Lane side during the winter.
Kane has responded to his manager’s faith lately with two goals in his last two games, including an important effort of the 3-3 draw at The Hawthorns against West Brom – a tie in which Spurs were three goals down.
The youngster has frequently been sent out on loan by Tottenham since making his debut a few years ago, and now says that he thinks he’s ready to play a more significant role not only this season, but in 2014/15 as well:
“I feel I’m good enough to be here and good enough to play for Spurs in the Premier League.” He is quoted by the London Evening Standard.
“Hope I’ve shown that in the last two games and I’m looking forward to the next ones.”
Promising midfielder Nabil Bentaleb has also been granted much game time, and Kane believes that it’s a good thing for England and Spurs that talented youngsters are getting chances:
“We have a great crop of youngsters coming through at the minute and it’s good that we’re being used.
“It’s important for English football and club football to be getting a chance at the top level and I feel every time we’ve had a chance, we’ve done well.
“We have the potential and it’s good that we’ve had the opportunity at such a young age. We’ve all got the ability to push on and make a statement in this team.”
