Amid his recent low form for club and country, Harry Kane just hit back at his critics to explain the reason behind his current situation. 

Ever since Harry Kane wasn’t able to leave Tottenham Hotspur, he’s been delivering poor results for his club and country. Any player who isn’t allowed to leave his club for new opportunities would feel discouraged to keep performing at a high level. Harry Kane has been one of the most consistent footballers in recent memory but he obviously wanted something better for his career.

If you sum up his achievements, all he’s gotten are a Premier League Golden Shoe and the World Cup Golden Shoe. He has reached later stages of the Euros and the World Cup but he always lost. At Tottenham Hotspur, he reached the UEFA Champions League in 2019 but he couldn’t win the title either. Anybody would expect a player who lacks motivation after so many disappointments. In Harry Kane’s case, this is by no means on purpose but it’s still quite evident. 

Kane doesn’t like criticism coming at him. 

After his dismal performance with England against Andorra, Harry Kane was questioned about the results he’s gotten lately. In a short rant he made in front of the press, Mail Online picked up the following statement: “I know there has been a lot of talk about me. I am my own biggest critic. I put the most pressure on myself to deliver. I am working as hard as I can for the team.

“When the chances come I am confident I will put them away. It was the first game in 15 (World Cup qualifiers) that I didn’t score. Not the end of the world. There is a lot of noise around me, but it’s how you deal with that. Performances for club and country maybe haven’t been there but there is no need to panic. I am confident in myself and the teams I play in.”
