Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino reckons that striker Harry Kane needs to be even better next season if he is to continue his progress.
The England international has enjoyed an amazing 10 months at White Hart Lane. After being on the verge of being loaned out to yet another lower division club, Tim Sherwood gave the striker an amazing opportunity and he has grabbed it with both hands. Pochettino took a lot of time before having the confidence to use the player in the league, but he was rewarded immensely after Kane scored 30 goals in all competitions before managing to win the PFA Young Player of the Year award.
Pochettino says that Kane needs to perform next season as well if he is to prove his critics that this season was not a flash in the pan. However, the 21-year-old will face a lot of challenges in order to do so. His opposition will be much more wiser when it comes to dealing with him during the game. Further, he will also be required to return much quicker than scheduled if Tottenham qualify for the Europa League. The lack of rest could be worsened because of his participation in the upcoming Euro U21 Championships. Read more »
