Harry Kane believes he has proved he is “ready to stand up and fight” after ending his goalscoring drought with a hat-trick at Bournemouth.
Tottenham striker Kane took home the match ball on Sunday after his treble in the 5-1 demolition of the the Cherries – which came off the back of only one goal in nine Premier League appearances this season.
Questions were started to be asked whether the 22-year-old – who burst onto the scene last term with 31 goals in all competitions – was a one-season wonder, but Kane insists he always remained confident in his abilities.
“You have to be patient, especially in the Premier League and as a striker it doesn’t always happen for you,” he told the club’s official website.
“You have to wait for your chances, keep working hard, keep trying to improve and the rewards will hopefully come your way.
“It’s all part of it. It’s all good when you are playing well and scoring goals but sometimes you see the true person when it’s not going so well and when you hit a low, you have to be ready to stand up and fight.
“I’m delighted to get the three goals, it shows I can do it and I have to keep going, keep building confidence and hopefully we’ll keep getting the results.”
Can Kane keep the momentum going or are you still worried he could be a one-season wonder? Have you say on our new Tottenham forum.
