Tottenham striker Harry Kane has denied reports that he is fatigued after he failed to score against Liverpool on Saturday.
Questions were raised over Harry Kane’s workload during the World Cup this summer and, despite Kane winning the Golden Boot at the tournament, those concerns have extended into the new domestic season.
Kane has now gone 249 minutes without a goal following a busy year for club and country
“People are always going to look for stuff, especially when you are a big part of the team and someone who is there to get the goals. As a team we can all do better and as the striker you get spoken about more, but I feel sharp and fit and if I wasn’t the manager would not be picking me,” Kane told reporters.
“He believes in me, I believe in myself and hopefully I can score a couple of goals on Tuesday and it will be put to bed. I said in regard to signing players the gaffer believed we had a strong squad and he did not want to sign payers for the sake of it. It showed huge trust in the players and we have to repay it.
“Energy wise there was no fatigue but it was not good enough with the ball. We will bounce back – through the season we are one of the fittest squads and we will continue to be this year.”
