Premier league 2016/2017 top goalscorer, Harry Kane thanks Chelsea manager Conte over his words of admiration for his talent
Conte said last week that he viewed Kane as the “complete striker” and added that he would love to bring the Tottenham Hotspur star to his London neighbor Chelsea.
Kane spoke about Conte’s praise as Tottenham get ready to battle Chelsea in the new season.
The striker responded directly to Conte’s words as the new Premier League campaign approaches.
Kane speaking toMetro said: “Obviously it’s kind words [from Conte] but I’m focused on my team now and what my manager thinks.
“I’m out here concentrating on what I need to do, and being fit for the new season.”
Kane finished as the Premier League’s top goal-scorer last season as he netted 29 times for the Lilywhites.
However, his fine form in front of goal was not enough to inspire Tottenham to the title, as the north London side ended up behind Conte’s Chelsea in the Premier League table.
Chelsea are preparing for their Premier League title defence having already strengthened their attacking options this summer by signing Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid.
